Urban Appalachian Council

The Urban Appalachian Council of Greater Cincinnati was formed in 1974 with the stated goal of “promoting a decent quality of life for the Appalachian citizens of Greater Cincinnati.” Their various programs attempted to do this by promoting education and leadership development, providing family services, celebrating the Appalachian culture, and helping with employment and training. In 2014, the Urban Appalachian Council closed its doors because of a lack of funding. Some of its social programs were absorbed by other organizations. Later the Urban Appalachian Community Coalition was formed by former board members of the Urban Appalachian Council and others with the expressed purpose of advocacy for, research with, and the artistic expression of Appalachian people, culture, and heritage.
