Cinnaire’s Advancing Communities Podcast brings together our Chief Strategy Officer Jim Peffley with thought leaders, guests, policy makers and others who are making an impact in the community development and affordable housing industries across the country. Our guests share their experiences and perspective on a range of topics, each supporting the belief that all people deserve the opportunities provided by living in healthy communities.

In this episode, Jim talks with Jim King, CEO & President of FAHE and Chrystel Cornelius, CEO at Oweesta Corporation, both leaders of Partners for Rural Transformation (PRT). PRT is a national coalition dedicated to advancing economic mobility in persistent poverty areas in rural America. Jim and Chrystel share their experience and perspective on the reasons why persistent poverty is so prevalent in rural America; how this in turn impacts all of America and actions PRT is doing to strengthen rural communities in general, and specifically in light of COVID-19 and recent events.
