About RCD

RCDRural Community Development (RCD) is a federal grant program that works with regional and tribal organizations to manage safe water systems in rural communities. RCD funds projects designed to:

  • Provide low-income individuals access to safe and affordable drinking water in their homes
  • Strengthen economic conditions and opportunities in these communities through water supply and waste water disposal training and technical assistance
  • Construct, improve and preserve water supply and disposal systems in a cost-effective manner

RCD supports the RCD/Homeland Security Program, which provides safety and security training and technical assistance to state, regional, and national grantees.
