The Economic Developmetn Work Group will be holding a meeting on February 27th, from 1-3. The goal of the Economic Development Action Plan, as part of the BHC initiative funded by The California Endowment, is to create a vibrant and diverse economy in South Kern and to support opportunities for the region. The plan focuses on two “transformation” platforms based on heath and food and agriculture systems. We are very excited to report that this includes support for the new Kern County Food Policy Council being led by the Community Action Partnership of Kern, and the development of a health careers pipeline.
