The Environmental Finance Center Network (EFCN) and the Rural Community Assistance Partnership (RCAP) have joined forces to provide free training specifically designed to meet the needs of small water systems serving populations under 10,000.

They are providing two self-paced classes that are accessible from any computer with an internet connection, anytime of day or night.

In addition, small systems needing more in-depth help, may be eligible for free one-on-one technical, financial, and managerial assistance from EFCN and RCAP.

RCAP will help carry out compliance-focused technical assistance projects for operators of small, remote drinking water systems through its Distance Assistance initiative. To request assistance through the state RCAP office, click here.
