The RCAP network produces a variety of resources in different forms – print, electronic and video, as well as highlighting resources that other organizations or agencies produce that are helpful and useful to small, rural communities. These resources are meant to reach and address various audiences (sometimes more than one), including:

  • Residents of rural communities where RCAP is working
  • Utility managers, operators and board members
  • RCAP field staff
  • Policy makers, members of Congress, state and local elected officials and leaders
  • RCAP funding agencies
