Title: Updates to Water and Waste Disposal (WWD) Loans and Grants--Section 306 C 

The Rural Utilities Service (RUS) intends to publish a final rule with comment to amend 7 CFR 1777, section 306C Water and Waste Disposal (WWD) Loans and Grants program.  The objective of the program is to provide water and waste disposal facilities and services to low-income rural communities whose residents face significant health risks and lack access to safe, reliable drinking water and waste disposal facilities and services. The updates to the regulation are expected to clarify terminology and policies, update scoring criteria, and streamline program processes and delivery to recipients.
