Rural Task Force Action Steps


The Rural Task Force brought together stakeholders from throughout the state in a grassroots, bottom-up effort in 2016. The task force developed a report in 2016, with recommendations that serve as a menu of options for legislative and budget proposals at the state level, and for implementation by individual communities to address their local needs. While not every action step can be funded initially, the report serves as the beginning of a bank of ideas to be implemented not only at the state level, but also for individual community programs.

The information below tracks the implementation of the action steps which have been included in Governor Haslam's budget, or those which do not otherwise require additional funding.
