Who We Are

The RMP Team

The RMP Team

We have formed a 501(c)(3) that employs a dedicated team, separate from participating organizations, to drive the shared work.

Our dedicated team brings partners doing work in priority areas together so everyone can do their pieces well in a more coordinated way, and also helps to fill the gaps for what is not already in place to meet our goals.
