Purpose, Mission & Goals


The bipartisan Congressional Rural Caucus was established to ensure a voice for rural communities and work toward educating other Members of Congress on the constantly changing face of rural America.

The Congressional Rural Caucus Today

Hit particularly hard by our current economic crisis, rural areas and interests need a unified voice in Congress to address their significant and unique challenges.  Rural Caucus Members work to strengthen our way of life by helping rural communities prepare for the future.  Our goal is to jumpstart initiatives to rejuvenate rural communities struggling under today’s difficult economic conditions.
