The Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) Program promotes the protection and conservation of land and water resources. Established by Congress in the 1960s under the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), RC&D Programs encourage volunteer, locally elected and civic leaders to plan and carry out projects that protect environmental resources and improve social and economic conditions in rural areas.
The NC Association of Resource Conservation and Development Councils consists of 10 councils that serve 88 of the 100 counties in North Carolina. The state RC&D association was incorporated in 1990 to promote the visibility and accomplishments of RC&D councils and to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and development of project partnerships.
