NEWS POSTED 03/28/2017 – IRWA RESPONDS TO PRESIDENT’S PROPOSED BUDGETMarch 28, 2017
The President’s proposed budget, which would eliminate all funding for the USDA water and wastewater loan and grant program as well as the Circuit Rider program, is at the forefront of all of our minds. It is vital to the survival of rural water that we make the President and Congress understand just how important these programs are for our rural communities.
IRWA has already begun taking action. One way we have taken action is by drafting several letters to our congressmen and senators. With help from National Rural Water Association, we are working on a plan to reach out to the decision makers, and educate them on the importance of Rural Development.
