Community and Rural Development Council

2020 Community Awards

The Community and Rural Development (CRD) Council of Nash County encourages citizens to participate in their local neighborhood organization to enhance the welfare and quality of life for Nash County residents. The Council also promotes education and inspires leadership within the community. They also provide countywide programs and services in Nash County. The CRD Council is comprised of six Nash County communities working together with the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Nash County Center.

This year many of the Council’s in-person programming had to be canceled due to COVID-19. While we stayed connected the best way we could, we trulyCommunity Stars logo missed seeing many of our community members.
