How do we rebuild our local economy?
This crisis is different for each community. So many jobs lost, so many businesses gone or in bad shape.
Most of the reopening and rebuilding advice out there is intended for big cities. It doesn’t match our small town reality. What works for rural communities trying to rebuild?
Everyone else is competing for the same limited resources.
- How do we compete?
- What if we can’t compete?
- And they may not be enough to save businesses already in trouble
Tighter government and nonprofit budgets mean resources we used to turn to for help, like the state or small business support agencies, are overwhelmed and less available to us. It feels like we’re on our own. Again.
- We don’t know the future or how many waves of shocks local economies may face.
- We can’t predict what the next problem or disaster will be, but we know there will be one.
