The Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) program provides funding to eligible local governments for projects that address crucial community needs including housing, infrastructure. Funding for water and sewer services is available through the CDBG Construction-Ready Water and Sewer Fund. Through this program, projects that will provide public water or sewer service to communities made up of at least 65 percent low- to moderate- income households may be eligible for assistance.
The Indoor Plumbing Rehabilitation program provides zero interest, forgivable loans for the installation of indoor plumbing where it does not exist, or where the existing water delivery or waste disposal systems have failed for the owners of substandard housing.
The Self-Help Virginia program works in conjunction with local residents on water and wastewater projects in small communities, with the majority of labor being provided by volunteers.
