This annual report of the Northeast Regional Center for Rural Development (NERCRD) highlights the Center's activities, programs, projects, and publications for fiscal year 1998. NERCRD receives modest funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and other funds from private foundations. Funds are used to link rural development efforts of the 15 land grant institutions in the region. The region encompasses the District of Columbia and 12 states: Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and West Virginia. The five goals that guided programming for 1998 include: (1) improving economic competitiveness and diversification; (2) supporting management and strategic planning for economic investment; (3) creating capacity through leadership; (4) assisting in family and community adjustments to stress and change; and (5) promoting constructive use of the environment. This report profiles 29 research and extension projects that address such areas as rural community development, rural poverty, distance learning, 4-H environmental programs, and sustainable development. Each profile includes contact information and Web addresses, where available. Contains author index and key word index. (CDS)
