Water and Waste Disposal Technical Assistance and Training Program (Funding from US Department of Agriculture, Rural Development)

The “Technitrain” program helps to protect public health and foster economic development in targeted rural communities throughout the United States and its territories by providing onsite, community-specific technical assistance and training that:

  • identifies and evaluates solutions to water and waste disposal problems.
  • assists communities in preparing funding applications for their water and waste projects.
  • improves operation and maintenance of existing water and waste-disposal facilities.

This program is part of RCAP’s overall mission of working with small, rural communities to increase local capacity. With an increased ability to tackle their own challenges, communities can better manage their assets, maintain compliance with state and federal water and wastewater regulations, work toward sustainable operations, and adhere to USDA Rural Utility Service (RUS) loan and grant procedures and requirements before, during, and after a construction project.
