Other Federal agencies provide assistance to RC&D sponsors within their existing authorities and programs.
State and local units of government and their agencies also participate. Thus, RC&D activities are broader
than those created by assistance from this Department alone. An indication of the level of participation by

For multistate applications and areas: The number is tabulated for the State
having leadership. The acreage column reflects actual acreage in each State.
The counties involved column reflects whole and part of counties in each
State.

For those States having counties that are involved in more than one RC&D area, the counties involved column figure will reflect this duplication. This duplication will also be reflected in the national total.
