Since 1978, Southeast RCAP has received a direct state appropriation from the Virginia General Assembly which is passed through the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD). This grant funds activities in six major program areas: community organizing, water and wastewater infrastructure development, system operation and management assistance, housing, rural economic development and rural environmental resource issues. Examples of services provided this program year include emergency grants to low-income families to replace or repair damaged plumbing, subsidizing tap fees and hook-on costs for low-income families, grants for up-front costs for preliminary engineering studies and other tests for community systems, and provision of comprehensive development costs in rural localities.

For assistance with this program, contact Russell Rice at rrice@sercap.org.
