Delaware Community Prosperity Virtual Summit
USDA’s Office of Partnerships and Public Engagement (OPPE) develops and maintains partnerships focused on solutions to challenges facing rural and underserved communities in the United States, and connects those communities to the education, tools, and resources available to them through U.S. Department of Agriculture programs and initiatives.
The purpose of the summit is to develop new partnerships to foster hope and opportunity, wealth creation, and asset building in our communities. The summit is a core aspect of our One USDA platform, and we are excited to work along with you to continue the process of engaging our partners.
The USDA Centers of Community Prosperity (CCP) initiative convenes local, state, federal and tribal partners, nonprofit organizations, faith and cultural leaders, veterans, youth organizations, and other strategic partners, to focus on the White House Rural Prosperity Taskforce recommendations emphasizing e-connectivity, quality of life, workforce development, innovation and technology and economic development.
