For the 11th session the Office of Rural Prosperity’s Grassroots Economic Development 101 were going to go deeper into topics that can seem a bit overwhelming to those that don’t work with these topics every day. You’ll hear a high-level overview from the Office of Recovery to get a better understanding of the process and possible uses of ARPA as well as SPARK funds. You will also gain a better understanding on working with your local legislators and have a legislative update on what is happening in this year’s session.
