Keep Wealth Local | Report

The Keep Wealth Local: Shared Ownership and Wealth Control for Rural Communities report is part of the Wealth Creation in Rural America initiative, funded by the Ford Foundation. The aim of the initiative is to help low-wealth rural areas overcome their isolation and integrate into regional economies in ways that increase their own- ership and influence over various kinds of wealth. The initiative has produced nine previous papers, which can be found here. The goal of this report is to advance the initiative’s broad aim of creating a comprehensive framework of community ownership and wealth control models that enhance the social, ecological, and economic well-being of rural areas.
