Frontier communities are the most sparsely populated, geographically isolated communities in the United States. The National Center for Frontier Communities (NCFC) is the national advocacy voice for frontier communities across the country. We know that targeted, frontier-specific solutions need to be created and implemented to strengthen our regions. Our mission is to assure that frontier needs and voices are not only heard, but that they are a key part of the solutions.

We serve as a central point of contact for referrals, information exchange, and networking among geographically separated communities.

Frontier communities differ in many ways, but all of them are sparsely populated and far from larger population centers. NCFC gives a voice to people and programs in frontier communities and raises awareness of frontier issues to policy makers, agencies, and the public.
