Generally, rural development, as most known concept, is associated with Rural Development Program and its implication. However, in our opinion, the rural development can be stimulated thought other types of EU funding as well. Currently, 46% of the Romania’s population lives in rural areas and the majority of them are involved in subsistence or semi-subsistence agriculture associated with informal employment or unpaid family work, low productivity and poverty. For the rural areas, the human capital is a very important resource and in order to increase economic growth in these areas it is necessary to invest in the education and the development of the rural population. Development of the rural population can be stimulated trough a set of supporting actions which implies changes and full support of the individuals or groups. Therefore, policies and programs designed especially for development of human resources can greatly help on educating and opening new opportunities for the rural population and in this way improving the quality of rural life. Through this paper we aim to analyze the Sectorial Operational Program Human Resources Development (SOP HRD) projects implemented in rural areas and for the rural area population and to highlight the importance of this type of projects for the development of the addressed areas.
