This session will showcase recent examples of on-site assistance designed to help rural communities provide environmentally sound waste disposal facilities to their residents while protecting public health and encouraging economic development. The Rural Community Assistance Partnership (RCAP) and its network of regional partners provide technical assistance and training to reduce or eliminate pollution of water resources and improve planning and management of solid waste sites in rural communities. Through U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development grants, RCAP’s network has assisted more than 70 rural communities and counties in 24 states and Puerto Rico.
