Nebraska Great Plains RC&D Council

To educate citizens, develop leadership, and revitalize the area through cooperative partnerships and leveraged resources.

Serve as models of positive, proactive leadership for other rural towns in the Midwest region to share resources, successes, and opportunities to energize the area.

The Resource Conservation and Development acts as a catalyst to help local people:

  • Protect their natural resources.
  • Expand markets for local products.
  • Promote tourism.
  • Provide community facilities and services.
  • Generally make their communities better places to work and live.

RC&D was established by Congress as a unique program to ultimately empower rural people to help themselves. These organizations are set up by local citizens to help people improve the quality of life in rural communities in
Nebraska through development of human and natural resources.

RC&Ds are self-directed, locally led regional grassroots rural development organizations. It is important to note that such a group is not a unit of government.

Each location is governed by a local council which defines problems and sets priorities for assistance. These councils provide direction, planning, and implementation of selected projects within their boundaries.

RC&D council members represent counties, towns, natural resource districts, farmers, ranchers, bankers, business personnel, homemakers, local officials, non-profit groups, and much more.
