Nevada Economy SET for New Success

By Jeremy Thacker

Connect Nevada is excited to support a new partnership that is aimed at getting rural areas SET for new economic success!

SET – Stronger Economies Together – recently launched its regional team in Fallon. Its goal is to develop a plan for an eight county area of the Western Nevada Development District. The SET team is charged with creating an economic plan for the region, complete a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) that will enhance each community’s ability to apply for funds, and develop understanding and skill in economic development processes through hands-on training.

SET is a national training curriculum to assist rural communities in developing a regional plan while teaching community members the basics of economic development. It has been co-developed by the Southern Rural Development Center and USDA Rural Development.

Connect Nevada expects its own local Connected Community teams to add greatly to the success of the SET mission. SET will enhance the work of Connect Nevada as the initiative works toward bringing better broadband access, adoption, and use across the entire state.
