RCD Assistance Program
The California Department of Conservation’s Division of Land Resource Protection supports conservation at the local level by providing assistance to the state's Resource Conservation Districts (RCDs).
This support can take the form of financial assistance through grant programs.
The California Conservation Partnership (CCP)
DOC serves as lead agency in a partnership of agencies and organizations coordinating their resources and expertise to help the people of California conserve, enhance and use natural resources in a sustainable and economically viable manner.
The partnership draws from numerous state and federal government agencies as well as other groups such as the California Association of Resource Conservation Districts and the County Supervisor’s Association of California.
One of the CCP's goals is bringing training and educational opportunities to RCDs to help build their capacity to deliver grass roots resource conservation to the people of California.
