REAP Organizing in 2006-2007
In the last year, one new Roundtable formed at Columbus, one group was reformed at Plattsmouth, and several others groups are in the formation process.
REAP services are available on a statewide – rural basis through both individual and group formats. Through the Center for Rural Affairs’ REAP program, communities and individuals can obtain business training, networking, small loans, loan packaging assistance, and one-on-one technical assistance.
