Outside the university campus, PCRD has a rich history of working with a number of state, regional and national organizations. These groups include the Indiana Association of Regional Councils, the Indiana Economic Development Association, the Indiana Office of Small Business and Entrepreneurship, the Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA), the Indiana Office of the USDA Rural Development agency and more. The center is also a member and works with the National Digital Inclusion Alliance (NDIA). Counties exploring the formation of a new regional organization are welcome to seek the assistance of PCRD as well.
