Rural policy opportunities

At the National Rural Assembly 2015 gathering, many rural policy opportunities were discussed. Among those were:

  • Permanently renewing the Earned Income Tax Credit and Low-Income Child Tax Credit

  • Modernizing the Lifeline program to include broadband

  • #SaveRural Hospitals - Stopping further closures of rural hospitals

Below is video from a policy discussion at the Assembly that highlights the importance of each of these issues, as well as additional resources on each of these topics.

A snapshot of these and other rural policy priorities is available here.
