About Connecting Rural Communities

The Connecting Rural Communities guide is designed to provide the information and tools community leaders need to identify, develop and implement projects that improve:

  1. The availability of access to broadband connectivity across the community;

  2. The ability of organizations in the community to use digital technology to achieve their mission and goals; and

  3. The ability of individuals in the community to use digital technology to improve their social and economic well-being.

Connecting Rural Communities is sponsored and funded by the Southern Rural Development Center through their 2005 Rural E-Commerce Extension Initiative Grants Program.
