Resource Conservation and Development agencies (RC&Dís) were formed by the USDA in the 1960ís to help aid and empower rural communities. Cascade Pacific was one of the first ten RC&Dís in the nation. Oregon eventually had eight RC&Dís, with each one limited at that time to a specific geographic area. Federal funding for RC&Dís was pulled in 2011, making it difficult for many RC&Dís to survive.
CPRCD is one of the few functional RC&Dís remaining in Oregon. Our rich experience in resource conservation allows us to sponsor projects and foster effective, collaborative partnerships. CPRCD is audited annually by a third party to meet federal granting requirements.
Cascade Pacific RC&D is guided by its Board of Directors and qualified Staff.
