Stronger Economies in Coal-Reliant Places

As regular readers of this blog know, I’ve been involved for several years on a major project to provide technical assistance to America’s coal-reliant communities as they seek to retrain displaced workers and develop new economic engines.   A new summary of our work to date has just been released, and it provides a good snapshot of both the challenges and opportunities facing America’s coal regions.  This project is still underway, and we’ll be hosting training sessions in Montana and Wyoming in Spring 2018.   You can stay updated on the project, and learn more about economic diversification more generally by signing up for our project e-newsletter, Growing Stronger Economies in our Coal Communities. You can learn more and sign up here.
