We are unapologetically rural. We stand up for rural America—the small family farmer and rancher, new business owner, and rural communities.
Since 1973, we've been a leading force engaging people to build a better rural future. Our policy work spans the nation and is focused in Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota, and Minnesota. Our on-the-ground work with communities and farmers takes place in Iowa and Nebraska. We lend to small businesses and homeowners in Nebraska.
As long as rural advocates are needed for sustainable agriculture, clean energy, and community development, you can bet we’ll be in the front lines, building a bright rural future.
