Rural Community Assistance Partnership
RCAP is a federally-funded nonprofit national service delivery network comprised of six regional partners that provide direct technical assistance, training, and financial resources to water and wastewater systems in more than 2,000 small rural communities each year in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. Most of the communities we assist are economically disadvantaged and have a population under 2,500. Our nearly 200 field staff members include registered professional engineers, certified operators, utility finance and board management specialists, community planners, and people with other relevant backgrounds.
