The Roanoke-Chowan Partners for Progress

The Roanoke-Chowan Partners for Progress

It’s being at the right place at the right time - that’s what RCPP2 is about!  The Roanoke-Chowan Partners for Progress 2 (RCPP2) can show you there is unity, creativity, and strength in being a part of this collaborative.  RCPP2 is comprised of regional community residents, businesses, nonprofits, educational and faith-based institutions, and local governments. 

The Roanoke Center coordinates the partnership with RCPP2.  A space has been created where networks are broadened, ideas are fertilized, resources are leveraged, toolkits are expanded, and collaborative teams generate vibrant opportunities for positive community changes.

Roanoke-Chowan Partners for Progress 2’s (RCPP2) mission is to coordinate the economic development efforts of nonprofits, local governments and community development within the Roanoke-Chowan and Roanoke Valley regions to stimulate a diversified, vibrant and growing local economy.   Stakeholders meet quarterly to share ideas, leverage resources, and discover common ground.  Partners’ continuous dialogue prevents entities from replicating work or stepping on each other’s toes.

Strategic items within the four areas of focus identified by partners.

Healthcare

What is the problem? Why? Changing face of healthcare.

Education

Capacity Building
