Community Policy Analysis Network

The Community Policy Analysis Network (CPAN) is a group of social scientists that meets periodically to identify and conduct research on emerging issues important to rural communities. The November 2000 meeting in Chicago, which was supported by Farm Foundation, focused on the contribution of health care to rural economies, obstacles to welfare reform in rural communities, and new approaches to rural economic development studies. The group began preparing a comprehensive set of background materials on the rural development title of the 2002 farm bill, as well as web-based education and outreach materials on a variety of rural development issues, and a book on community policy analysis modeling.
