Helping communities navigate their economic future
Extension's Community Economics team works with Minnesota communities as they develop their economic strategy, offering education, research, analysis and advice. With solid research and informed action, communities can chart courses that are realistic, well-informed, and supported by the community.
As a result of educators' consultation with regions and communities, they often tailor their approach to address local concerns.
Our programs and expertise are able to address:
- Retaining and expanding local businesses
- Understanding economic change
- Knowing and growing retail trade
