Types of RC&D Assistance
The Seven Rivers RC&D Council offers both technical and financial assistance for the seventeen county RC&D area.
Assistance includes natural resources protection and enhancement, land and water conservation, erosion and sedimentation control, storm water management, community development, historic site preservation, tourism, environmental education outreach, etc.
Financial assistance typically involves cost-sharing of state, federal, and private grant funds for project implementation. Participants consist of local units of government, federal and state agencies, environmental groups, farmers, developers, planners, agricultural producer groups, faith-based groups, and individual homeowners.
Our community development projects have emphasized hazard mitigation planning at the county level, small town improvement efforts, and promoting environmentally friendly tourism.
