Environmental Infrastructure Loan Program helps create,
improve, or expand the supply of safe drinking water,
waste disposal systems, and other facilities that serve

pre-development costs prior to receiving state and
federal program funding. RCAC also may provide interim
construction financing, as well as intermediate and

Projects must be located in rural areas with populations
of 50,000 or less in Alaska, Arizona, California,
Colorado, Hawaii and other Pacific islands, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon,
Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. Community size is limited to 10,000
