About Us

How We're Helping

We are a nonprofit organization focused on assisting rural communities in Texas.  We work through a network of 13 individual Resource Conservation and Development Councils across Texas to implement environmental and community  development projects in small towns and rural areas.  We provide leadership training, grant research, and direct financial assistance through various local, state and federal partnerships to improve quality of life for rural citizens and the environment we all depend on.

Get Involved

Are you passionate about helping your community to grow? Let us know! We are always looking for volunteers to help us make our vision a reality. We'll help you find a way to help your community  that best suits you. We're excited to have you join the team!

Thank You

Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.

Supplemental Environmental Projects

Through an agreement with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality,  we receive funds from enforcement actions to solve many environmental problems across the state.  Illegal Tire and Trash Dump Removal, Household Hazardous Waste and Electronic Waste Collections, Septic Systems for Low Income Households, Public Water Supply Upgrades, and Clean School Buses are provided through this program.  Contact your local RC&D Area for details.
