Rural and small communities are generally known to face a unique set of workforce and development challenges compared to their urban counterparts. Consequently, rural areas often feel the negative impacts of limited housing on a larger and magnified scale. Join this webinar to hear how your economic development organization can support its rural workforce and increase its economic competitiveness through affordable housing.

The conversation will cover:
