Exploring Rural Challenges & Opportunities with Michigan's Office of Rural Development


Join your peers for a conversation with Michigan's Office of Rural Development's (ORD) inaugural director, Sarah Lucas, and other state officials. Together we will discuss pressing issues affecting rural communities, especially workforce shortages and population migration patterns​, broadband, housing, child care, health and new state and federal resources. While the conversation will focus on rural communities, the issues we'll cover affect urban communities as well and all funders are encouraged to join.
