City officials from rural cities participated in a meeting where they learned about the “California Rural Infrastructure Finance Guidebook.”
Funded by the United States Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development, and produced by the California Association for Local Economic Development (CALED), this guidebook was designed to empower California’s rural leaders and economic development practitioners by giving them the necessary tools to support economic growth through infrastructure financing and development. This important resource shares how to build capacity and finance infrastructure in rural communities.
Visit the CALED website to download the guidebook
. The presentation slides and recording from the meeting are available on the League’s Rural City Information Exchange resources webpage
How to Get Involved
