Resource Conservation and Development Councils play an important role in the conservation, development, and utilization of natural resources. RC&D Councils work to improve the general level of economic activity and to enhance the environment and standard of living in all communities. Councils provide a system of rural development to encourage the wise use of natural resources, and improve the quality of life in America. RC&D is a unique program that is led by local volunteer councils who work together to plan and carry out activities that will make their areas a better place to live.
