NATIONAL TO NEIGHBORHOODS: Catalyzing Opportunities for Coal-Impacted Communities

This regional report released by the Reclaiming Appalachia Coalition in January 2021 is the third in a series and further seeks to spur innovative economic development throughout Appalachia in communities where the landscape has been irreparably changed by coal mining.

The report highlights successes from 2019-2020 and provides case studies of projects that advance community development amidst abandoned mine lands, or in some cases by reclaiming abandoned mine features as part of the project.

The report is a collaborative project from Appalachian Voices, Coalfield Development, Downstream Strategies and Rural Action.
