Buy Local Rural Nevada....... A USDA initiative,      Stronger Economies Together (SET) and Governor's Office of Economic Development (GOED) , sponsored by (WNND), Western Nevada Development District 

We are: Buy Local Rural Nevada.
This is a result of the SET Blueprint>Strategies>Project/Initiatives from the Communications/Networking workgroup

The Western Nevada Development District (WNDD) is Nevada’s sole planning district recognized by the U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration and is comprised of the governing bodies of the nine counties of western Nevada, stretching from Humboldt County in the north to Mineral County in the south.

The Stronger Economies Together (SET) was recognized early on by the Western Nevada Development District as an asset-based economic development tool that could uniquely serve the region in various capacities. As defined in a briefing paper by the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) and the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) Research Foundation, asset-based economic development is a bottom-up approach to economic development that builds on existing local resources to strengthen local and regional economies and focuses on a community’s natural environmental, socio-cultural, and economic advantages.

We are committed to driving sales to Rural Nevada~Locally Owned Businesses, to help create more Rural Nevada Jobs.
We are asking all Locally Owned businesses to UNITE, and help us with "Buy Nevada First" campaign.

Are you RURAL Nevada based-Locally Owned Business?  We want to help you increase sales (get more customers) by asking consumers and Nevada based businesses to SHIFT their purchases to locally owned, AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.
