A national survey of rural development stakeholders identified health as a priority recovery and growth in rural America. Investing in Rural Recovery: Findings from a Rapid Assessment of Stakeholder Priorities for Rural Development summarizes the results of a national survey conducted in the fall of 2021 by the nation's four Regional Rural Development Centers. The survey is part of a year-long Listening Session Initiative aimed at identifying key priorities and critical investments for rural communities’ recovery and growth. The questionnaire served as a rapid appraisal of key informants’ perceptions about priorities, capacities, and potential to expand programming in eight critical topic areas. Respondents also reported the types of programs found to be most valuable and the resources, challenges, and opportunities they perceive for rural communities. The report marks the close of the first stage in the consultative feedback process being led by the RRDCs and will provide a basis for a series of facilitated dialogues in the initiative’s second phase in March and April of 2022.
