RCAP Services in West Virginia
The West Virginia Rural Community Assistance Program assists small communities throughout West Virginia with utility, financial, asset management and other needs. West Virginia RCAP is operated by West Virginia Community Action Partnership and is part of Great Lakes RCAP, administered by Great Lakes Community Action Partnership.
The Rural Community Assistance Program (RCAP) provides consulting services to help rural communities address their drinking water and wastewater treatment needs. Our field agents assist communities with project development and capacity building. West Virginia RCAP is operated by West Virginia Community Action Partnership and is part of the Great Lakes RCAP network, and receives funding from a number of federal programs to provide technical assistance to communities under 10,000 population. Many of our client communities serve only a few hundred people, or are rural areas in need of public water or sewer service.

Planning for Pandemics Toolkit
In response to growing concern over the global spread of the coronavirus that may reach the level of a pandemic outbreak, the Ohio Rural Community Assistance Program (RCAP) has developed a Planning for Pandemics Toolkit for small water systems to help prepare for a pandemic. The toolkit includes informative flyers on the coronavirus and sanitation, as well as and a continuity of operations plan template that can be used to prepare for any pandemic (coronavirus, influenza, etc.).
It's always best to be prepared! Should your operator or other key personnel fall ill, how will your water or sewer system continue to operate? RCAP offered a short webinar in March to explain how small water and sewer systems can develop a plan for pandemics and other illness-related conditions.
