The quality and competency of the communities we live in contribute
to the prosperity of all of our citizens. The RDC’s unique approach is
to “incubate” economic development projects while building capacity for
local organizations and communities to take them on. The RDC applies a
“life cycle” approach to its economic development efforts, designed to
strengthen organizations and build community ownership.

- Research and Analysis

- Effective Convenor. Through regional work in the culturally and economically
diverse communities of Northern New Mexico, the RDC has developed a reputation
and considerable expertise in convening diverse interests in an effective manner
that produces results.
- Unique Solutions. Rather than applying a one-size fits all approach, the RDC
is dedicated to crafting unique, creative and innovative solutions for communities
- Larger Lens of Opportunity. As a result of its regional focus, the RDC always
looks for “big picture” opportunities and solutions, as well as new partnerships
and collaborations, whether working at the regional, local or statewide level. We
create opportunities through strategic partnerships for mutual benefit that are
greater than the sum of our individual efforts.
- Strategic Implementation. For each project it takes on, the RDC sets a strategic
course for taking the project from start to finish, using its “life cycle” approach.
Our expertise in grants and contracts, sound financial management and capacity building
ensure that the job gets done.
- Quality Work. The RDC is committed to professional competence; high-performance
teamwork; and open, straightforward communication. Living and working in Northern New
Mexico, our process and products reflect our dedication to Northern New Mexico and our
practice of citizenship.
- To ensure ethical stewardship of resources, the RDC adheres to independent audit
standards with active oversight from a professional Board of Directors.
- The RDC applies best practices from national and international partners, including
the Energy Communities Alliance (ECA) and the International Economic Development Council
