Feasibility of Mini-Hubs as a Rural Economic Development Tool

Organization:
Research Triangle Regional Partnership Foundation
Amount:
$39,979.00
Program Area:
Open Grants Program
County of Applicant:
Wake
Description:

The Research Triangle Regional Partnership will conduct a study on the feasibility of using a mini-hub strategy for rural economic development. Target communities will be rural areas in the Research Triangle region. The proposed mini-hubs would contain education, training, and other related services to link to organizations located elsewhere. Each of the proposed hubs would have sufficient scale and amenities to attract businesses that would otherwise locate in urban areas and would serve two or more counties that alone lack critical mass and resources to attract new or existing industry in higher wage, high-tech manufacturing, and service sectors.
