RCAP Services in Ohio

The Ohio Rural Community Assistance Program (RCAP) provides consulting services to help rural communities (fewer than 10,000 in population) address their drinking water and wastewater treatment needs. Each year, we serve well over 200 communities in Ohio and leverage millions of dollars for water and sewer projects. Our field agents assist communities with project development and capacity building. Ohio RCAP is part of Great Lakes RCAP, administered by Great Lakes Community Action Partnership.
