Distressed Counties Program
GO TO WEBPAGE


ARC has provided special funds for the Region's poorest counties since 1983. At first, the distressed county program focused mainly on providing badly needed public facilities, especially water and wastewater facilities, and on human resource projects such as literacy training. Under pre-1983 guidelines, most of these counties were too poor to qualify for federal aid for these facilities.
