Rolling Acceptance

Last year, more than 2.5 million rural residents and businesses benefitted from improved water and wastewater infrastructure thanks to financial assistance from USDA. The Department provided over $2 billion in financing for 640 rural water and wastewater infrastructure projects.

Whether you need to build, expand, or renovate your system, USDA has funds available now in the Water and Waste Disposal Loan and Grant program.
