The Agency’s Emergency Community Water Assistance grants help rural communities that have experienced a significant decline in quantity or quality of drinking water due to an emergency – or are expecting an imminent decline – to obtain or maintain adequate quantities of water that meets the standards set by the Safe Water Drinking Act. The emergency can be, but is not limited to, drought, earthquake, flood, tornado, hurricane, disease outbreak, or chemical spill, leakage or seepage. Grants are awarded to cities and towns with a population of less than 10,000 and with a median household income of 100 percent of a state’s non-metropolitan median household income. Grants may be made for 100 percent of the project costs. Significant information including links to rural development state and area offices where applicants must apply can be found on the Web site.
