This webinar will help raise awareness about the cooperative business model within the RPN and highlight opportunities for collaboration between the RPN and co-op members currently working in RPN cohort communities. The webinar will also serve as an opportunity for RPN members to learn how cooperatives can serve as a tool in addressing the needs of their communities. 

The RPN is an all-of-government program that helps rural communities find the resources and funding to create jobs, build infrastructure and support long-term economic stability on their own terms. Currently, RPN has Community Networks within 10 pilot states. The RPN Community Liaisons provide on-the-ground technical assistance to‚ÄĮRPN Community Networks‚ÄĮdealing with substantial resource gaps to help local leaders navigate and access the federal resources they need to build a strong and vibrant economy. The community networks are comprised of motivated, inclusive and collaborative local leaders and stakeholders working to identify opportunities to address high-priority community needs with additional technical and financial assistance.¬†

We encourage cooperatives interested in learning more about the Rural Partners Network and opportunities for partnership and collaboration to‚ÄĮregister here. Registering for the webinar ensures that you will receive the recording in the event you cannot attend.
