Services for Rural Missouri

The Missouri Rural Resource Guide was designed to improve the alignment of public, private and non-profit partners around the state of Missouri. Organized by six common areas of focus and further categorized by specific community or business needs, we strive to increase awareness and effectiveness of existing resources.

Growing Rural Communities

We all love our communities—now let’s show the rest of the world how much rural Missouri Feels Like Home to growing businesses and families. From waste water treatment grants to workforce training programs, we can point you to rural-related resources that can help strengthen your small community. You can also learn about local initiatives underway in every corner of the state that can serve as resource guides for communities/regions struggling with new and creative local development strategies.
