Mississippi River Cities and Towns Initiative (MRCTI)

Presentation of the Organization

There are 124 Mississippi River main stem cities and towns. These riparian population centers are soundly River-centric. MRCTI gives a common voice to those who depend most upon the River, and by virtue of doing so, spans political and economic interests.

The MRCTI builds the capacity of member mayors, empowering them with the tools and support to undertake effective local initiatives which attract green jobs, move towards sustainable economies and achieve local environmental protection goals.

Ultimately, MRCTI's work helps protect and restore the Mississippi River as a natural system that can support human culture and economies, as well as the River's unique ecosystem and wildlife.
