Rural Renaissance Award
TNECD Rural Development introduces the Rural Renaissance Award for best practices in rural development. At the Governor’s Conference in October, we will recognize three recipients for outstanding projects. We are asking for submissions from communities and other organizations that describe successful projects and how the results have been measured. We are looking for projects related to economic or community development and can be successfully implemented grants, projects that have been funded with local funds, volunteer-led projects, or a combination. Submissions will be accepted through October 13, 2017.
