The White House Convening on Rural Placemaking

On November 17, 2015, the White House Rural Council, in partnership with Project for Public Spaces and the National Main Street Center, hosted The White House Convening on Rural Placemaking. The Convening brought together federal, state and local public sector officials, national non-profit organizations, foundations, to discuss how federal, state, and philanthropic entities can support and leverage the power of placemaking by America's rural communities.
