The Center for Rural Affairs

Location: Iowa

Grant Amount: $75,000

The Center for Rural Affairs has been a leading advocate for rural communities, family farmers, and ranchers for over 40 years, striving to foster a thriving rural future across the Midwest. Committed to propelling clean energy development, the Center provides resources to local decision-makers, engages rural leaders, and shares stories highlighting the benefits of clean energy. Acknowledging the vital role of local acceptance for clean energy projects, the Center aims to expand its outreach and education efforts, with a focus on county leaders in Iowa. Support from RCP will allow the Center to enhance its work with planning and zoning boards, known to be key influencers in determining whether and how clean energy projects are implemented. This initiative aims to bridge the gap between rural needs and clean energy development, ensuring smoother project adoption and advancing rural prosperity.
