Panhandle Lakes RC&D Council

Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) is a unique program that is led by local volunteer councils that help people care for and protect their natural resources in a way that improves the local economy, environment and living standards.  RC&D is a way for people to work together to plan and carry out activities that will make their areas a better place to live.

Resource Conservation and Development is a program of the United States Department of Agriculture.  It was created by a provision of the Food and Agriculture Act of 1962.  The Secretary of Agriculture gave Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS - formerly Soil Conservation Service) responsibility for administering the program.  RC&D is based on the assumption that local citizens, with help provided through the USDA, can develop and carry out an action oriented plan for the social, economic and environmental enrichment of their communities.

The purpose of RC&D is to promote conservation, development and utilization of natural resources; to improve the general level of economic activity; and to enhance the environmental and standard of living in all communities.  The aim is to provide a system of rural development, encourage the wise use of natural resources, and improve the quality of life in America.
