Communities involved in this new round of the program must have fewer than 5,000 residents and a poverty rate of greater than 10 percent as of the 2000 census, according to Kari Fruechte, Horizons Project director for the SDSU Cooperative Extension Service.

A public Spotlight session was held in Philip on September 13.
