The University of New Hampshire’s Carsey Institute has released two policy briefs as part of the Institute’s Investing in Rural America’s Families and Communities Project. Policy Brief #1, released in Fall 2005, is titled “Rural America Depends on Food Stamps.” Policy Brief #2, released in Spring 2006, is titled “Low-Skill Workers in Rural America Face Permanent Job Loss.” The project is engaging leading scholars to review specific rural issues and conduct original research. The project also involves in-depth regional reports analyzing demographic and economic changes since World War II, and their impact on the vitality of rural communities, changing values and politics, and connections between urban, suburban, and rural issues. The project’s publications are funded in part through a W.K. Kellogg Foundation grant. Links to the policy briefs can be found at http://www.carseyinstitute.unh.edu/Investingrural.html.
