Resilient Communities


Croatan Institute is deeply engaged in helping communities build local prosperity and resilience. With a specific focus on Appalachia and the Rural South, Croatan Institute’s work involves connecting communities with investors, providing technical assistance to organizations focused on rural wealth-creation, and training local groups on specific tools and skills. From training early-stage value chains on how to run successful crowdfunding campaigns, to engaging with investors who want to divest from fossil fuels and reinvest in a just transition, Croatan Institute’s projects have impact across sectors and communities.
