RJC seeks to reverse the growing disparity between rural and urban areas by stressing to lawmakers that this inability of rural small businesses to access the capital they need not only threatens the survival of rural communities and the middle class, but also impedes small business growth, economic expansion and job creation, which only concentrates rural poverty.

Policymakers have an immediate opportunity to encourage capital formation in rural communities before their core employers – small businesses – leave, taking ideas and jobs with them. America’s future depends upon a vibrant, diverse economy throughout the entire country.

Together, we give a voice to rural America and its entrepreneurs, promoting important access-to-capital initiatives for rural small businesses and working with legislators ensure rural small businesses have the ability to reach their potential.
