In 2005, The Center for Small towns, together with the University of Minnesota West Central Regional Sustainable Development Partnership, began the "New Minnesotans" project that aimed to help identify underrepresented racial and ethnic groups who are new residents of West Central Minnesota. The project's goal was to find ways to support the needs of these groups and to encourage their abilities. Twelve counties were involved in the study done for the project: Big Stone,Chippewa, Douglas, Grant, Kandiyohi, Lac qui Parle, Pope, Renville, Stevens, Swift, Traverse, and Yellow Medicine.
