The goals of the grant are to: 1) provide specialized training for mid-career rural and community development decision-makers and other professionals so that they may acquire the diversity of skills necessary to better serve the needs of tobacco-dependent communities; 2) engage in collaborative applied research to support the efforts of the Carolina Kenaf Farmers Foundation in introducing a new alternative agro-industrial crop in eastern North Carolina; and 3) integrate and coordinate the region’s rural development dialogue and agenda through a bi-annual rural restructuring conference which will facilitate meaningful exchange and the generation of new ideas among the various rural development leaders and stakeholders.
