Three Rivers Planning and Development District received Rural Community Development Initiative (RCDI) grant funding through the U.S. Department of Agriculture – Rural Development in 2011 to provide technical assistance to 24 low-income municipalities located within its eight-county region. TRPDD selected the 24 municipalities because they all had a median household income below $30,000 according to the 2000 U.S. Census.
As part of the scope of work for its RCDI project, TRPDD collected information from a variety of resources in order to build asset inventories to highlight businesses, schools, churches, and other local assets within each community. An online asset map for each community can be accessed by clicking on the municipality’s name below:
