CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St. Paul, Va. Thursday, April 16, 2015 Page 7 SS Virginia was selected as a Stronger Economies Together (SET) Phase V state for 2015. This designation creates an opportunity for two selected rural Virginia regions to receLve economic development coaching and technical assistance. SET is a high-quality regional economic improvement prograrn that strives to strengthen the capacity of commu- nities and counties in rural America by developing and implementing economic advancement blueprints for the multicounty regions. Launched in 2010 by U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development in collaboration with the nation's Reg!onal Rural Development Centers and their land-grant university partners, this initiative is now in place in more than 50 regions in 28 states. It strategically builds on the current and emerging economic strengths of the regions. "This project represents an outstanding opportunity for Virginia's rural communities," said Janice Stroud-Bickes, assistant to the state director of USDA Rural Development-Virginia. "Rural regions will have access to technical support for community-based collaborative planning along with needed economic data analysis through the SET project." Economic development progress is more likely to be realized when rural and urban counties work together as a regionito assess, design, and implement plans that build on tl rir assets and comparative economic strengths. Creatiflg, attracting, and retaining jobs as a single rural county in isolation from other nearby counties is becom- ing increasingly ineffective, said Martha Walker, commu- nity viability specialist with Virginia Cooperative Extension and SET project coordinator. In 2012, Virginia entered SET Phase HI and worked with the Northern Neck and the Virginia Growth Alliance regions. "Both groups developed proactive regional economic development plans and were recognized for their excep- tional work at the SET 2015 Multi-State Conference," said Walker. Virginia regions are invited to apply to the SET project. Two multicounty regions in rural Virginia will be selected to participate in the 2015 initiative. A region is eligible if it (1) encompasses three or more contiguous counties in Virginia or in conjunction with counties in neighboring states, and (2) has a population and/or geographic area that is 51 percent rural in nature or 75 percent of the land area must be considered rural based on census data or other sufficient data or documentation. The regions selected will receive economic develop- i ment coaching and technical assistance for at least 18 : months, including: Valuable training on the core building blocks for developing and launching a regional economic develop- ment plan. In-depth economic data that delineates the criti- cal drivers of the region' economy. Tools that uncover local assets and resources that can be tapped to advance the region's economic strategies and actions. All regions that meet the eligibility requirement ar : invited to ' submit an application by visitin ! http://tinyurl.corn/SET-Virginia and completing the appli'- cation form Completed applications must be submitted electroni2 cally to Martha Walker by Thursday, May 7, 2015, will be reviewed by a state steering com- mittee, and the two selected regions will be announced by: June 30, 2015.
