CT RURAL TOWNS
The CT Office of Rural Health definition of rural: All towns with a population census of 10,000 or less and a population density of 500 or less people per square mile as designated as rural was revised and adopted by the CT-ORH advisory board November 2014. The definition was created for the sole purposes of providing strategic direction for the planning and implementation of initiatives to fulfill its mission and determine rural towns/communities eligible for financial support from the CT-ORH.
