The Rural Partners Network announces nominations for rural innovators

May 24, 2024
By: SSTI Staff

The Rural Partners Network, an all-of-government program that helps rural communities find resources and funding to create jobs, build infrastructure, and support long-term economic stability, is asking the public to nominate rural innovators who are positively impacting their rural communities. Individuals of all ages, including youth, are eligible. According to an announcement on their website, nominated individuals could be engaged in either the public or private sectors, including local, state, Tribal, and territory governments; nonprofits; businesses; philanthropy; or academia.

The nomination form is here and will close on Friday, June 14, at midnight EST. The White House will recognize selected individuals later this year.
