USDA Encourages Rural Communities To Apply For Funding To Upgrade, Rebuild Rural Water Infrastructure

Triblive.com’s Patrick Varine Monday reported the U.S. Department of Agriculture invited rural communities across the United States to apply for grants and loans to upgrade and rebuild rural water infrastructure.
USDA is providing the funding through the Water and Waste Disposal Loan and Grant program. It can be used to finance drinking water, stormwater drainage (including green infrastructure that follows best management practices) and waste disposal systems for rural communities with 10,000 or fewer residents.
“USDA is committed to being a strong partner to rural communities in building their futures,” said Anne Hazlett, Assistant to the Secretary for Rural Development. “All people – regardless of their zip code – need modern, reliable infrastructure to thrive, and we have found that when we address this need, many other challenges in rural places become much more manageable.”
Eligible rural communities and water districts can apply online for funding to maintain, modernize or build water and wastewater systems.
Applications are being accepted on a continuing basis for this funding.
Visit the USDA/PA Water & Waste Disposal Loan & Grant Program In PA webpage for more information.  Questions should be directed to Curt Coccodrille, State Director, 359 East Park Drive, Suite 4 in Harrisburg, call 717-237-2299 or other program contacts.
Visit the USDA Rural Development/PA webpage for information on other funding programs that benefit rural Pennsylvania like-- Rural Energy for America Program for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Improvements.
