Fluharty founded RUPRI in 1990. RUPRI is the only national policy institute in the United States dedicated to assessing policy impacts on rural America. RUPRI takes a comprehensive approach and “provides unbiased analysis and information on the challenges, needs, and opportunities facing rural America. RUPRI’s aim is to spur public dialogue and help policy makers understand the rural impacts of public policies and programs,” according to RUPRI’s website.
Michelle Decker, Rural Action Executive Director, had this to say, “Dr. Fluharty is simply one of the main leaders in this country helping policy makers of all stripes understand how important rural places are to America’s future. He is in the trenches in Washington and can share with our members why rural matters and how Rural Action can play a role in promoting a progressive rural development movement.”
