Rural Counts. A simple message... with broad implications. 

The Rural Center was founded 30 years ago with the belief that Rural Counts, and we have been working for three decades with rural communities across North Carolina to promote their value, build upon their assets, and improve the quality of life for all citizens of North Carolina.

As we look to the future, we recognize that now more than ever, rural North Carolina needs to clearly articulate what it offers the state, present its values and assets in positive terms, and work together across communities and regions to implement smart strategies that will help rural areas flourish.

The Rural Center's advocacy agenda, Rural Counts: 10 Strategies for Rural North Carolina's Future, is the product of closely listening to North Carolinian's and deeply researching the issues. The 10-point plan reflects what we heard directly from you. It is offered in the best North Carolina tradition of partnership and collaboration and represents a determination to meet our rural future head-on. It is an example of our deep belief that we are one state that we must move forward together.
