Region Nine Development Commission’s nonprofit Region Nine Area Incorporated was awarded a $200,000 grant from the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota Foundation. The grant will help create and nurture more connected, resilient, and inclusive communities where all people have the support and resources to reach their full health potential. It will be used to expand the Rural Equity Learning Community, a learning cohort to share, examine, and explore inclusive best practices to create welcoming communities and strengthen local economies. Sleepy Eye will be the first location of this year’s cohort in partnership with Sleepy Eye Public Schools and Sleepy Eye Economic Development Administration.
