Our Blueprint

Our blueprint details both our vision and our plan. Both must rely on our skilled workers and farmers while also offering hope for our next generation—of all races, ethnicities, and genders. The policy priorities outlined in this document would create over half a million good, family sustaining jobs by investing in people and communities.

Job Studies

Jobs Studies Policy Briefs by Reimagine Appalachia

These policy briefs summarize key findings of the PERI reports (linked below) of how implementing the policy priorities of our Blueprint would create over half a million jobs across our region.

Jobs Studies Released by the PERI Institute

Researchers from the internationally renowned PERI Institute have detailed how the ReImagine Appalachia blueprint can build a durable foundation for an economically viable and ecologically sustainable longer-term recovery. These studies show how climate stabilization can serve as a major engine of economic recovery and expanding opportunities throughout the state.

Whitepapers

Our whitepapers are the next stage in ReImagine Appalachia’s work to show that federal investments in the people, communities and infrastructure of Appalachia can work to revitalize the region, if politicians are willing to step up to the challenge.
