Rural Maryland suffers from the highest unemployment in the state as well as high poverty rates. Citizens lack access to transportation and health care providers. Help us change that.
We have a simple mission: to support efforts of citizens and government meet the economic and social needs of rural Maryland; to serve as the Maryland Rural Development Council if the Rural Maryland Council ceases to function in that role; and to support the efforts of the Rural Maryland Council.
