The Appalachian RC&D Council is 501(c) (3) non-profit organization chartered in 1994 as an volunteer-based agency. We currently have a 20-member Board with trustees from each of the six counties we serve: Carter, Greene, Johnson, Sullivan, Unicoi, Washington.
Our mission is to conserve natural resources and improve rural economies through community leadership and enhanced educational opportunities. We work tirelessly to preserve our heritage, promote local growers/producers and protect the lands of past generations so that future generations may be able to enjoy the natural wonders our region has to offer.
RC&D Councils are a national program established by Federal Public Law in 1962 with responsibilities assigned to the United States Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resource Conservation Service (the USDA’s NRCS). The RC&D program faced an unprecedented challenge in 2011 when Congressional budget cuts severed federal dollars from the NRCS to support RC&Ds nationwide. While NRCS remains a valuable RC&D partner, Councils across the nation, including the Appalachian RC&D, have had to transition to a new situation with staffing and operations.
RC&D Councils have never been governmental agencies. The Appalachian RC&D remains a 501(c)3 tax-exempt nonprofit organization. Our Council is in a strong financial position and we are actively seeking funding and partnerships, and volunteers, to keep multi-year funding in place for our programs.
