Rural America continues to be a source of strength and opportunity for both the people who live there and for the nation as a whole. It boasts significant natural resources, vibrant and diverse culture, and strong families. Yet in too many rural and tribal places, kids and families are falling behind. This book describes ways to measure rural poverty and sets out a number of concerning trends. The book highlights many of the critical programs lifting millions of rural children and families out of poverty, and emphasizes the need to do more.
