Research Rural

What we've learned by standing with communities on topics they care about

We’re in the hope business — helping rural communities expand their dreams, and bringing people together to make those dreams reality.

We’re committed to strengthening rural Minnesota communities. That means going deep with them on the opportunities and challenges they face. We gather and share information to give those outside rural a window in, and to resource rural leaders who have rolled up their sleeves to get things done in their community.
