Administered by the Rural Community Assistance Program (RCAP),
HHWWP offers an up to $11,000 loan for water-well construction
or repairs. Loans carry an interest rate of 1 percent. Loan
maturity may not exceed 20 years and will depend on the
borrower’s repayment ability. Borrowers will be responsible for
associated loan costs such as recording and other fees.
“HHWWP provides rural homeowners on a fixed income a highly
affordable means of improving their water wells,” Rural
Community Assistance Program Assistant Director Kristin Woodall
said. “The program offers loans at a very low interest rate that
should be manageable for homeowners to budget.”
To be eligible, residents must live in a rural area such as a
township, village or county wherein the population does not
exceed 50,000. Applicants must own and occupy the home or be
purchasing the home that is serviced by the well. Household
income for Ohio residents applying must not exceed $55,216.
RCAP is administered by WSOS Community Action Commission,
a northwest Ohio-based nonprofit agency.
