NeighborWorks America recently published NeighborWorks Works: Practical Solutions from America’s Community Development Network. The book, published in December 2016, inlcudes GROW South Dakota.
The book consists of case studies of the outstanding work being done in community development, as well as innovative solutions in affordable housing. The strength of the NeighborWorks network and GROW SD’s experience and peer-to-peer resources allow it to not only leverage expertise, but also build an elite solution-based platform to improve lives and strengthen communities to overcome even the toughest of challenges.
The GROW SD case study in the book focuses on its work with regional partners to promote economic development in rural communities through the USDA Rural Community Development Initiative. It also focuses on the Grow Housing program, through which GROW SD helps local communities develop and implement housing plans.
GROW SD CEO Lori Finnesand said, “We are proud to not only be participating in this project, but also be a chartered member of the NeighborWorks network." The book launched December 12, 2016 in Washington D.C.
