The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Community Development Initiative (RCDI) awarded Rural LISC $250,000 to help build the capacity of 19 of its Partner CDCs serving rural areas in 16 states.
In the community of Tamaqua, Pa., industries have come and gone and the downtown community that once flourished was facing blight and abandonment through lack of local activity. Rather than letting the area fall by the wayside, Tamaqua Area Community Partnership teamed up with other local organizations to create a lasting impact that has started to turn the downtown community into a place for residents to gather and celebrate local culture.
