In light of the recent decision by Congress to eliminate the NRCS's funding for the RC&D program,
we wanted to let you know that High Country RC&D is still open for business! Nationally, the
RC&D 's were created by an act of Congress 40 years ago, and this recent budget action does
not negate our existence. Instead, it eliminates the federal funding for an RC&D coordinator and
other contributions by the NRCS to the RC&D program.
Here at High Country, we have been in business for nearly 32 years as a 501(c) 3 non-profit. We
look forward to the future with optimism and renewed enthusiasm. As ever, our programs will
continue to provide valuable assistance to farmers, ranchers, forestland owners and communities in
