Southeast Rural Community Assistance Loan Fund Program provides low-interest loans to low-income rural communities for predevelopment costs, system upgrades and new construction of water and wastewater services and facilities. Loans are also available for housing and community development.

The household water well system loan program is designed to assist low- to moderate-income individuals needing loans to construct, refurbish and service their household well systems. The purpose of the program is to target loans to the significant numbers of homeowners in the seven states whose geographically isolated households lack water service, but for whom it is not feasible to be connected to new or existing community water systems.


Loan applicants must own and occupy the home for which they are applying for a water well loan. The water well system being funded may not be associated with the construction of a new dwelling.

Also the water well system being funded by the loan may not be used to substitute for water service available from collective water systems. The home using the water well system must be located in a rural area, and the combined household income for an individual applying for a loan should not be more than 100 percent of the median non-metropolitan household income for the state.

Priority will be given to applicants who are disabled, elderly or who have minor children.
