We keep rural communities at the heart of the policy process. We provide a policy voice and platform for our Western partners. RVCC understands how natural resource policy works on the ground, and ensures that these policies lead to ecologically responsible and economically equitable outcomes that advance rural community vitality through land stewardship.



We track emerging policy and legislation relevant to RVCC values and our diverse coalition of participants.

We analyze policy changes and proposals and their impacts on rural communities. We act on policy changes at the federal level, including new statute, rules, or agency directives.

We understand how a policy works and why it matters to our Coalition participants. Our focus is practical and includes a "how to" approach.
