  • National Priority Area 4 (private well owners education and outreach) – $1.7M awarded to Rural Community Assistance Partnership (RCAP)

Several of these awardees have arranged to partner with or issue sub-awards to other assistance providers.  As soon as ASDWA better understands which providers have made such arrangements, we will share that information with you.
