RCAC in Washington
Grants and contracts with state and federal agencies allow RCAC Washington staff members to focus on communities with the greatest need. RCAC technical assistance is free to selected communities that meet funders’ requirements. Communities generally must be rural organizations with a population below 3,300. RCAC technical assistance is limited to available resources within Washington state. As projects are completed, new communities may be added. Communities not referred by one of RCAC’s funders are encouraged to contact a technical assistance provider to discuss their needs and to determine if RCAC can serve them.
RCAC also works closely with Evergreen Rural Water of Washington. The differing expertise and approaches of these two technical assistance organizations combines to provide a strong base of support for rural communities.
