The Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) Program is based on a premise that local people, working together, can identify and solve problems and realize opportunities that will enhance the quality of life in their area.
The Southwest Nebraska RC&D Council is a non-profit organization made up of volunteers in the local community. They are responsible for directing work of the council.
One of the major objectives of the council is to make available the total resources of USDA and other public-private partnerships to build relationships, create financial leverage and increase the capability of communities to meet their regionally identified resource conservation and development needs.
