Grants to USA and territories multi-state, regional, faith-based, tribal, private, and community nonprofit organizations to improve water supply and wastewater systems in rural communities. Eligible projects provide small, low-income communities with training and technical support to develop their own systems, connect to systems in neighboring communities, or improve existing systems.

The program will:

  • Ensure that individuals with low incomes living in rural communities have access to safe and affordable drinking water in their homes.
  • Protect the health and safety of individuals with low incomes in rural areas through the environmentally sound disposal of wastewater and sewage from their homes and other facilities in the community.
  • Resolve water or wastewater disposal issues affecting individuals with low incomes in rural areas that may be influenced by population size or geographic isolation through cooperation among communities on a local or regional basis.
  • Strengthen economic conditions and opportunities for individuals with low incomes in rural communities as a result of water supply and wastewater disposal training and technical assistance.
  • Enhance the capacity of local communities and tribal organizations to manage and operate water and wastewater systems that are programmatically and fiscally sound.
  • Increase community awareness of, and adherence to, sound water use and disposal practices, and support for safe and affordable water systems that protect the health and safety of individuals with low incomes. 
  • RCD funds may be used for training and technical assistance that provides expertise and capacity building support to small, rural communities in an effort to address the goals of the program, as listed above.
