RC&D Council Board

The Chestatee-Chattahoochee Resource Conservation and Development Council is a small non-profit organization servicing the thirteen counties in northeast Georgia. Our mission statement is: To assist individuals and communities in utilizing and protecting our natural resources while improving the economy, environment and quality of life. Our membership consists of representatives from each of our thirteen counties, as well as our five Soil & Water Conservation Districts and the Georgia Mountains RDC.

The RC&D Council welcomes ideas from our members regarding how we can partner to address local needs and concerns. We have several programs in place to accomplish our mission including, but not limited to, Wheels-to-Work and Rural Road Striping. We also have several 319(h) grants which we are administering in an effort to improve water quality within specific watersheds in northeast Georgia. More information can be found on our website.
