South Centre' Corridors RC&D

South Centré Corridors RC&D Council was formed in January of 2002. It was created to identify and address Natural Resource concerns and issues that have potential to be developed and utilized in a manner that both protects the resources and provides economic stimulus. The Council service area is located in the southeastern portion of Virginia.  South Centré Corridors RC&D is a 501(c) (3) Non-Profit Corporation. 

The History of South Centré Corridors RC&D Council 

Back in 2000, a small group of committed volunteers formed a steering committee to discuss RC&D and how it might impact this part of Virginia. Our boundaries were drawn and application was prepared and submitted to the United States Department of Agriculture. We were formally authorized as South Centré Corridors RC&D by Secretary of Agriculture Ann Veneman in January 2002.
