REDWOOD COAST: Redwood Coast Rural Action (RCRA) is a regional approach to addressing the economy, the environment, and social equity. Founded in 2002, RCRA represents Humboldt County and surrounding counties in Northern California. Originally convened by stewards at Humboldt State University, College of the Redwoods, and Humboldt Area Foundation, RCRA is an effective vehicle for all community leaders to join together to chart the region’s future. The North Coast Regional Manufacturers’ Network Project (NCRMN) focuses on streamlining the manufacturing supply and value chain, thereby supporting manufacturing growth and development of the greater economy within the region. The project identifies the region’s inherent manufacturing capabilities, and connects those manufacturing assets with business needs and demands.
