CREC Examining Changes to the Appalachian Region Since 1965

November 22, 2013

CREC has teamed up with West Virginia University’s Regional Research Institute(RRI) and Bureau of Business and Economic Research (BBER) to examine the significant structural and socioeconomic changes to the Appalachian Region since 1965 and to determine to what extent the Appalachian Regional Commission’s (ARC) economic development investments have contributed to these changes.  The year-long research project is being sponsored by the ARC, a regional economic development agency that represents a partnership of federal, state, and local governments across the 13 Appalachian states.
