Our History

Founded in 1982, Rural Revitalization Corporation was originally formed under the federally funded Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation. This federal program had funded hundreds of urban revitalization projects at the time, but Cattaraugus County was the first in the nation to function in a rural location. Originally located in the now converted schoolhouse at the corner of Washington and Jefferson in the Village of Ellicottville, RRC now operates in downtown Olean, NY.
