The RC&D Program helps to develop and implement project plans. Project plans are integrated into the broader Area Plan. All projects must produce public benefits.

Project Purpose
Land Conservation "The purpose of which is to control erosion and sedimentation."
Water Management "Provides one or more clear environmental or conservation benefits, the purpose of which is to provide for the conservation, use, and quality of water, including irrigation and rural water supplies; the mitigation of floods; the improvement of agricultural water management; and the improvement of water quality."
Community Development "The purpose of which is to improve the development of resources-based industries; the protection of rural industries from natural resource hazards; the improvement of recreation facilities; and the promotion of food security, economic development, and education."

Arrow President Obama launched the America’s Great Outdoors (AGO) Initiative  
America's Great Outdoors President Obama launched the America’s Great Outdoors (AGO) Initiative to develop a 21st Century conservation and recreation agenda. AGO takes as its premise that lasting conservation solutions should rise from the American people – that the protection of our natural heritage is a non-partisan objective shared by all Americans.

AGO recognizes that many of the best ideas come from outside of Washington. Instead of dictating policies, this initiative turns to communities for local, grassroots conservation initiatives. Instead of growing bureaucracy, it calls for reworking inefficient policies and making the Federal Government a better partner with states, tribes, and local communities.

The projects found here show how the Americas Great Outdoor promise of recreation through conservation is working.
