We all want a fair shot at building a good life—regardless of where we live—yet a lack of investment in job creation and other critical resources in rural and Native communities has resulted in inequitable gaps in health in these areas. Giving everyone the opportunity to live their healthiest possible life will make all of our communities—and our country—stronger.
When rural and Native communities thrive, our country thrives: our economy is more successful, our culture more vibrant, and our future brighter. Working families, small businesses, and family farmers in these areas help drive America’s economy, providing food, water, energy, products, and services that contribute to quality of life across the country.
We use grants and impact investments to support the efforts of rural and Native communities to develop local and regional solutions that reduce inequities and help residents thrive.
