Closing America’s Wastewater Access Gap Community Initiative
The new initiative will be piloted in 11 U.S. communities where residents lack basic wastewater management that is essential to protecting their health and the environment. EPA, USDA, Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, West Virginia, and Tribes will jointly leverage technical assistance resources to help historically underserved communities identify and pursue federal funding opportunities – including from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
Encouraging homeowners, wastewater professionals, and state, tribal, and local officials to design and maintain effective systems to protect public health, preserve valuable water resources, and sustain economic vitality in their communities.
