To assist RC&D Councils in developing partnerships that enhance the quality of life in America's communities.
RC&Ds provide an area-wide framework for locally-directed action and cooperation aimed at solving problems identified by the people who are experiencing them first hand. RC&D councils operate on the premise that local citizens, with coordinated assistance provided by cooperating sources, can develop and carry out action plans which address problems they themselves have identified. Citizens, groups, organizations or agencies within the RC&D area can contribute by bringing concerns before the council, proposing projects and keeping the council aware of community needs.
The National Association of Resource Conservation and Development Councils coordinates the efforts of hundreds of RC&D Councils, and thousands of volunteers, as they create successful delivery systems that benefit local communities. The goal of the RC&D concept is a diverse, healthy and productive rural population well positioned for success. Local Resource Conservation and Development Councils are unique non-profit organizations made up of volunteers who identify unmet needs in their communities and work with local citizens to create solutions that work. The folks who make up an RC&D council are neighbors. They know how to blend government programs with local needs to produce results. In essence, they know how to speak the government’s language, and yours.
