RC&D is a council of local citizens that represent farmers, businesses and units of government to coordinate economic development project in primarily rural areas. RC&D areas are multi-county in scope and led by a citizens group called a council, board of directors, or executive committee. Council members represent official sponsoring organizations, however, they can develop task forces and working group composed of technical specialists and other interested in individual projects. The Natural Resource Conservation Service, (RNCS), an agency known for its partnerships with local communities, administers the program for the U.S. Department of Agriculture. NRCS provides a coordinator, and gives other support for each RC&D area. But, it is the local council or directors that make each RC&D area unique.
