Tennessee RC & D Council Home
The Tennessee Association of Resource Conservation and Development Councils (TN RC&D Council) is composed of 12 Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) Councils in different regions of Tennessee. RC&D Councils provide a unique process for Tennessee to develop its economic, natural, and social resources in ways that improve the economy, environment, and quality of life. Most of the counties in Tennessee are represented by an RC & D Council. Take a moment to review our website to see the many things the TN RC & D Council and its member RC&D Councils are doing across our great state.
WHERE ARE WE NOW?
Today enters the time of year when we take a deep breath, appreciate America, celebrate Christmas and begin to envision our expectations for the year 2017.
When the administration defunded the Resource Conservation and Development program as administered by NRCS on April 15, 2011, few volunteers could understand why. They were shocked.
RC&D Quarterly Board Meeting and General Session
The Tennessee Resource Conservation and Development Council (RC&D) will hold a quarterly Board meeting and General Session during the TACD 73rd Annual Convention at February 26, 2017, at 3:00 pm.

The Resource Conservation and Development Program (RC&D), initiated in 1962 under authority of Food and Agriculture Act of 1962 (P.L. 87-703), assists multi-county areas in enhancing conservation, water quality, wildlife habitat, recreation and rural development. Work in each area is coordinated by a council. At present, 375 areas have been approved encompassing more than 2,500 counties.
