New Rural Project (NRP) is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization that engages 

young and marginalized residents in rural communities to amplify their voices through increased civic and electoral engagement.


​NRP works to eliminate barriers to engagement by listening to rural stakeholders and working together to develop community-driven solutions.


NRP is focused on seven North Carolina counties that are some of the most economically distressed in the state, with higher-than-average unemployment rates and declining populations. NRP believes that the key to improving these communities is engaging the citizens to fully participate in the civic and electoral process so that their voices are heard at all levels of government.
