U.S. Dept. of Agriculture will conduct a StrikeForce forum for Calhoun and Roane counties on Tuesday, July 29, from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Calhoun and Roane residents and leaders are invited to attend the forum at Arnoldsburg Com-munity Building.

In 2010, USDA launched the StrikeForce for Rural Growth and Opportunity as an effort to leverage partnerships in poverty-stricken rural areas to ensure that every community has equal access to its programs.

USDA partners with rural communities and regions on locally-supported projects, and takes steps to provide technical assistance and explanation as needed to ensure that communities can fully access USDA programs.

Attendees will participate in a community discussion that will identify the needs, barriers and opportunities in the region. USDA, state and local organizations’ representatives will assess if programs and/or partnerships can address community needs.

The forum is hosted by USDA, in partnership with other federal, state and local organizations. Program information will be available. The forum will include refreshments and door prizes.

If you plan to attend, RSVP by July 25 to 927-0975 or 354-6332, or email or brandy.

Below is reprinted a needs assessment form. Fill out the form and take it with you if you are able to attend the StrikeForce Forum on July 29.

If not, return the completed form to WVU Extension Service-Calhoun County, Attn: Daisy Bailey, P.O. Box 680, Grantsville, WV 26147, or WVU Extension Service-Calhoun County, Attn: Brandy Brabham, 110 Parking Plaza, Spencer, WV 25276.
