Who We Are

Your local SCMRC&D Council is a seven-member volunteer board that collaborates with area partners in an effort to improve the quality of life in Lincoln and Otero Counties. As a nonprofit organization, we have the privilege to partner with anyone looking to make a difference in our part of the Land of Enchantment, including you or your organization.

What We Do

Together with local agencies, groups, and individuals, we secure teams and funding to complete project proposals that solve local problems and satisfy local needs. Everything we do is to improve the local environments, economies, and lives of our fellow citizens.

Since 1967, we’ve completed projects that have positively impacted the residents of Lincoln and Otero Counties in Southern New Mexico…

With your help, we can continue to enrich our communities.
