North Carolina Rural Center
Our mission is to develop, promote and implement sound economic strategies to improve the quality of life of rural North Carolinians. We serve the state’s 85 rural counties, with a special focus on individuals with low to moderate incomes and communities with limited resources. The Rural Center works with statewide partners to develop a joint vision for the long-range future of rural North Carolina and to shape and advocate for policies to achieve that future. The center is a private, nonprofit organization funded by both public and private sources and led by a 50-member board of directors.
