Harold Hunter was nominated by CommunitiesUnlimited, the Southern RCAP, to be one of March’s #StraightFromTheTAP honorees. Hunter has spent 25 years working with CU, and he is the Texas Director of Environmental Services.
Prior to joining the CU team, he worked with the State of Arkansas in their Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. With this position, Hunter took the lead in evaluating applications for eligible activities. He was the first Chairman of the country’s first water and sewer multi-agency review team, Arkansas Water Wastewater Advisory Committee – a committee still active today!
For Hunter, the best thing about being a part of the RCAP network is meeting and having a positive impact on so many citizens in small communities. “It is a compliment to get invited in special events in small towns as they really appreciate RCAP assistance and want us to celebrate with them.”
Because of his 25 incredible years of experience, Hunter was asked if he had any advice for new TAP’s joining the RCAP network. He stresses getting to know employees in the local offices of federal partners, and creating relationships wherever possible. Thank you, Harold, for all of the hard work and dedication you’ve shown to improve quality of life, starting at the tap.
