RDI Newsletter: January 2017

The Powered by Rural newsletter features some of our favorite projects, shines a light on rural, and lets you know what’s new at RDI.

WealthWorks grants invest in Port Orford dulse production, a live seafood market in Old Town Bandon, and biodynamic compost production in Charleston.
RDI and the Applegate Valley are working together to shape the future of the region’s economic vitality.
We would like to thank departing RDI board members Doris Penwell and Wes Price for their many years of service.
RDI was recently awarded a grant from Umpqua Bank in support of our Business Retention & Expansion program.
Registration is now open for the Learn By Doing Grant Writing Workshop Series which is open to nonprofit organizations in Lane, Benton, and Linn Counties.
We are delighted to welcome our new Research Associate Allie Monn to the RDI team.
