Foundation Project Update
John Stevens from Densch McLean Carlson presented findings from early research conducted as part of the Foundation Project and possible options for attraction and retention strategies. The Committee will workshop these options in April which will ultimately inform RCV’s work in coming years.
About the Foundation Project
The aim of this project is to determine drivers and barriers to population attraction and retention, relevant to Victorian rural communities, and identify a priority set of initiatives for implementation over three years consistent with RCV’s role, mandate and capacity.
Over time this project will support rural communities in building capacity and improving performance in attracting and retaining people and businesses in rural areas.
