What is Rural Broome Counts?
Rural Broome Counts (RBC) is a needs-assets assessment project that takes a deeper look at the 11 rural townships in Broome County (townships with 200 people per square mile or less). RBC completed its initial assessment, and has released a full report for use by all stakeholders. RBC will be updated every three years so that we can track rural Broome County’s status and provide information for other planning efforts, such as the Broome County Community Health Assessment, Aging Services Plan, Coordinated Transportation Plan, and others.
Who is participating in Rural Broome Counts?
The lead agency for RBC is the Rural Health Network of South Central New York (RHNSCNY). RBC is being generously supported by the United Way of Broome County, the AmeriCorps VISTA program, the Rural Health Service Corps, and the NYS Office of Rural Health. RBC is envisioned as an open, inclusive process with participation encouraged by all interested stakeholders, including community leaders, educators, health care providers, transportation providers, human service providers, planners, the agricultural sector, etc.
