For Rural America and ALL who “Dare To Care” about U.S. (Thank YOU) re: “New Markets Tax Credits”

ALL who “Dare To Care” about U.S. (Thank YOU) – “It’s similarly a big deal in the numerous medically-underserved rural counties, where the New Markets program provided lynchpin financing for the construction of 68 community health centers. According to research by Stanford University, despite rural communities accounting for about 20 percent of America’s population, less than 10 percent of physicians practice in these communities. Meaning that although rural residents have higher rates of age-adjusted mortality, disability and chronic disease than their urban counterparts, they have less access to doctors and healthcare providers. And it’s a big deal in towns like Cherokee County, South Carolina; Baileyville, Maine; and Aliceville, Alabama; where New Markets-funded manufacturers have brought new life and innovation to a struggling wood-products industry.” –
