Empowering citizens and organizations

A vital rural community has capacity (the ability to learn, plan, make decisions, and act together) and is realizing positive social, economic, and environmentally sustainable outcomes.
We believe community residents with different perspectives can work together to take action on community-identified issues.
We provide tools and resources to promote regional connections.
Explore coordination, research and policy opportunities to strengthen rural infrastructures.
