USDA Resource Conservation and Development
Over 30 years ago, Congress established a unique program within the U.S.
Department of Agriculture that empowered rural people to help themselves.
The USDA focus was to assist local people by providing tools and technical
support to stabilize and grow their own communities while protecting and
developing natural resources. In return, local "Councils" provide
local direction and planning and coordinate implementation of specific projects
within their boundaries. The focus on local direction and control has made
RC&D one of the most successful rural development programs of the Federal
Government. Project focus provides for the sustainability of local
economies and resources.
