Rural Development Partner’s CEO, Jonathan Klaasen, was recently interviewed by Novogradac for the June 2020 Journal of Tax Credits on the subject of NMTC CDEs integral role in stabilizing and rebuilding the American economy during and after the COVID-19 global pandemic.
“From a rural perspective, I’ve been inspired by the response of food banks,” said Klaassen. “The pandemic is highlighting the need for food distribution infrastructure. Additionally, people working from home are realizing the importance of reliable internet access. Supporting workforce development initiatives remains essential to job accessibility, but I also see the growing importance of food security and broadband infrastructure for rural communities.”
