This is the eighth year that the Alabama Cooperative Extension System has offered grant support under the Rural Alabama Initiative (RAI) program. Administered by the Economic and Community Development Institute, the RAI grant program is designed to provide financial support to seed worthwhile rural initiatives that help boost a wide range of economic and community development efforts.
Extension has provided more than $1,300,000 in RAI funding to support 163 projects across rural Alabama. These projects have included community and regional adult and youth leadership development programs, workforce development academies, technology camps for high school counselors, high school robotics competitions, computer skills training for adults, rural tourism development programs and entrepreneurship training.
