Help make a difference in rural communities across the West. Apply today!

Our board and staff are committed to provide training, technical assistance, financial resources and advocacy to help rural communities throughout the West achieve their goals and visions.  We work in diverse and low-income communities to increase access to affordable housing and safe drinking water, promote economic opportunity and job creation, and provide financing for community and economic development projects.

At RCAC most program staff have the opportunity to travel, work in a flexible environment and define and develop their own work plans to achieve community driven outcomes. Though our staff works in 13 western states, we celebrate teamwork with open door access to peers and senior leadership. We offer competitive salaries, benefits including retirement and help with student loans, and offer growth and advancement opportunities within the organization. We have a keen interest and desire for our staff composition to reflect the diversity of the communities we serve.
