Who We Are

The Michigan Rural Community Assistance Program (RCAP) is a nonprofit that provides consulting services to help rural communities address management and operations' needs for drinking water and wastewater treatment systems.  We assist communities with the technical, managerial, and financial aspects of the water and wastewater treatment business.

Michigan RCAP is part of the seven-state Great Lakes RCAP network (Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia, and Wisconsin) that provides technical assistance to communities under 10,000 in population.  Many of our client communities serve only a few hundred people, or are rural areas in need of drinking water or wastewater treatment service.

Michigan RCAP receives competitive grants from the USEPA, USDA RD, and Health and Human Services that allow us to provide services to communities at no cost.  In addition, we provide low cost fee-for-service for GIS, asset management plans, and energy audits.
