Community-driven strategies to address persistent poverty in rural areas

Persistent poverty describes communities where at least 20% of the population has lived below the federal poverty line for 30 years or more. The majority of counties experiencing this type of poverty are located in rural areas. This webinar explored strategies rooted in community expertise and cultural traditions that improve wealth and engagement. We were joined by Emily Burleson from Partners for Rural Transformation who talked about how her network of community development financial institutions supports families located in chronically impoverished regions. And Lisse Regehr, president and CEO of Thrive Allen County, shared success stories demonstrating how the Kansas-based organization now centers its work in equity, systemic change and civic engagement.
