WHO IS THE CONNECTICUT RC&D?
Connecticut Resource Conservation and Development (CTRC&D) is a 501(c)(3) statewide charitable organization. We foster grassroots projects for sustainable growth and food security for Connecticut residents. CTRC&D programs and projects make a significant impact to Connecticut communities, farmers, government, and conservation partners.
Agriculture and conservation are important and vital for Connecticut’s economic growth. Agriculture’s impact on the state’s economy equates to between $3.3 and $4 billion annually. Conservation is imperative to Connecticut’s economy and new business development. It supports critical infrastructure and resources as well as tourism and livable communities for residents and businesses. Connecticut’s tourism industry contributes $14 billion to Connecticut's economy which is important for business growth in Connecticut’s 169 towns.
Through this website, you can explore all the programs and possibilities available through CTRC&D, including technical assistance, council membership, and innovation opportunities.
