Kentucky Launches Capacity Development Assistance Program

Julie Smoak, Kentucky’s Capacity Development Coordinator, is delighted to report the launch of a new effort in her state – their Capacity Development Assistance Program (CDAP).  Any Kentucky public water system serving 10,000 or fewer persons is eligible to apply for assistance to improve their managerial and financial capacity.  CDAP provides funding (via reimbursement) for certain non-capital projects that these small systems might not otherwise be able to pursue.  Some examples of eligible projects include:

●  Asset Management Plans      ●  O&M Manuals

●  Tank Inspections                       ●  Water Loss Audits/Lead Detection

●  Regionalization Study             ●GIS-based Water Infrastructure Mapping

●  Rate Study

Kentucky does note that the funding is limited and that projects will be ranked according to MHI, population served, and other factors.  A copy of the application form is attached for your review.   Project Application Questionnaire 9 9 2011

Congrats to Julie and her team for finding a way to further support her state’s small systems needs!
