Ozark Foothills RC&D
RC&D is a local grass roots organization whose leadership comes from its sponsors, Conservation Districts and Local units of Government.  The decision making body, called a Council, determines the social, economic, and environmental problems and issues relevant to the area.  The Council then develops and implements a plan with local citizens in leadership.  The RC&D concept is that local communities, all levels of government, and grassroots organizations, working together, can develop and implement solutions to widespread and local problems and develop opportunities that will help sustain rural communities, local economies, and natural resources.

RC&D serves as a catalyst for local groups to share knowledge and resources in a collective effort to solve common problems.
