Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) is a unique program that is led by local volunteer councils that help people care for and protect their natural resources in a way that improves the local economy, environment and living standards. RC&D is a way for people to work together to plan and carry out activities that will make their areas a better place to live.
The Four Focus Areas of the Texas RC&D
- Land Conservation - RC&D Councils work with local partners to identify, fund and complete land conservation projects of all types.
- Water Management - RC&D Water Management Projects often create recreation opportunities that also create jobs and make communities more attractive to development.
- Community Development - The NARC&DC provides training, coordination and communication services that help Councils in their community development projects. Assistance is provided to councils as they seek to strengthen their organization’s non-profit operations.
- Land Management - The NARC&DC works with funding partners to make sure worthy projects find the financial assets they need to be successful. National staff continually updates councils on new opportunities for funding.
