A key component of community capacity involves knowing where to find tools and resources needed support a community’s development initiatives. In addition to developing tools and resources, typically as a product of a research project, CaRDI links communities to a variety of tools and resources developed by local, state, and national partners, including those noted below. We also share cutting edge tools and resources, monthly, through our e-newsletter, The Communique.
Tools and Resources
- Tools of Community Development, from eXtension’s Enhancing Rural Community Capacity Community of Practice
