We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.”    — Albert Einstein

We Join In…

After years of working in the field of economic and community development for rural and tribal communities, our founding partners realized a new approach is necessary to achieve lasting success.  Many small communities lack key elements – capacity, capability, capital, and connections – to realize impactful change.  The Alliance for Rural Impact provides the missing components by bringing together a team of partners to meet any need – and achieve any goal.

The Four Cs of Community and Economic Development



A community’s capacity includes its existing assets, organizational structures, financial tools and leadership.  We help communities establish the right foundation for future progress.



Experts can be both generalists and specialists.  We analyze what is needed in your community and provide expertise to fill the gaps.



Every community has the ability to provide financial support for community and economic development priorities.  We help develop the right tools to meet your needs and leverage local resources with state and federal funding.



Building partnerships is the best way to achieve long-term success.  We cultivate the most effective relationships to help you achieve your goals.
