Rural Advocates meet in Cooperstown

NYS Rural Advocates held their annual meeting in Cooperstown, NY on November 9 and 10.  During that meeting it was acknowledged that the preservation program is all about JOBS. The non profits funded are community economic and housing professionals, responding to community needs and are accountable to the community where they work.  The funding supports housing and community building which is the message of the Governor’s Economic Regional Councils across the State.  Full funding for the  Preservation Program is essential as are flexible housing and community programs that are size and scale appropriate to save small communities.

Rural Advocates welcome new board members Stephanie Lane and Jerry Willard.
