Background Wastewater systems are basic and vital to both health and economic development. With environmentally sound waste disposal, rural communities can attract families and businesses that will invest in the community and improve the quality of life for all residents. Without safe and clean wastewater facilities, communities cannot sustain economic development or ensure the mitigation of health risks that can arise from poor sanitation. USDA’s Rural Development Agencies, comprising the Rural Utilities Service (RUS), Rural Business-Cooperative Service (RB–CS), and Rural Housing Service (RHS), are leading the way in helping rural America improve the quality of life and increase the economic opportunities for rural people. RUS provides financing for much-needed infrastructure or infrastructure improvements to rural communities, which includes Water and Environmental Programs (WEP). WEP provides the technical assistance and financing necessary to develop, improve, and operate drinking water and waste disposal systems. Safe drinking water and sanitary waste disposal systems are vital to public health, and to the economic vitality of rural America. WEP is proud to be the only federal program exclusively focused on the water and waste infrastructure needs of rural communities with populations of 10,000 or less. Additionally, WEP provides funding to organizations that provide technical assistance and training to rural communities to support water and waste activities and is administered through National Office staff in Washington, DC, and a network of field staff in each state. On December 20, 2019, Congress passed the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020, which established a pilot program, the Technical Assistance and Training for Innovative Regional Wastewater Treatment Solutions (TAT/RWTS) Grant Pilot Program, to assist communities with wastewater systems. Specifically, Congress was concerned about raw sewage discharge in some rural communities, particularly historically impoverished communities that have had difficulty utilizing Rural Development programs. Rural Development was directed to develop a program to solve untreated raw sewage E:\FR\FM\05OCN1.SGM 05OCN1
