Regional Rural Development Centers

Advancing the Economic Health of Rural America

The Regional Rural Development Centers are a trusted source of economic and community development data, decision tools, education, and guidance for our nation's rural communities.

Collectively, the Centers form a one-stop-shop connection to the nationwide network of Land-Grant Universities and the Cooperative Extension Service. Each Center serves a U.S. region and taps its Land-Grant University network to form innovative research and Extension partnerships in the area of rural development.

Together, the Regional Rural Development Centers help rural communities make science-based decisions about their community and economic development investments.
