Every state has an NRCS State Technical Committee. State Technical Committees serve in an advisory capacity to the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and other agencies of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) on the implementation of the natural resources conservation provisions of Farm Bill legislation. Committees are intended to include members from a wide variety of natural resource and agricultural interests.

Chaired by the NRCS State Conservationist in each state, these committees are composed of representatives from Federal and State agriculture and natural resource agencies, American Indian Tribes, agricultural and environmental organizations, and agricultural producers. 

State Technical Committees meet regularly to provide information, analysis, and recommendations to appropriate USDA officials, who strongly consider their advice. Individuals or groups wanting to participate as members on the Rhode Island State Technical Committee may submit requests to the Rhode Island State Conservationist, R. Phou Vongkhamdy, at explaining their interest and relevant credentials.

The meeting is open to the public. Learn more about the Rhode Island State Technical Committee.

People with disabilities who wish to participate in the meeting and require special accommodation, please contact Allie Brown in advance at or 401-822-8841.
