SERCAP's Certified CDFI Loan Fund Program Assists Low-Income Family of Three in Augusta County, VA!

Recently, SERCAP’s Certified CDFI (Community Development Financial Institution) Loan Fund assisted a low-income family of three (3) in Augusta County, VA, to connect to the public sewer system. The family was experiencing difficulty with their septic system when the drain-field ceased to function properly, but instead of replacing their failing septic system the family requested that they connect to the public county sewer system. However, due to the clients’ low-income status, they were unable to afford the connection fees and cost of the sewer lateral extension on their own, without causing serious financial hardship.

Fortunately, SERCAP was able to step-in and provide financial assistance, through a low-interest, affordable loan, which covered the full cost of laying the laterals and connecting to the public sewer system. SERCAP’s Loan Fund provided an Individual Household Septic Loan in the amount of $9,672.06, and set-up an affordable monthly payment for the clients. Now they once again have reliable access to an environmentally sound wastewater solution in their home.

Without SERCAP’s Loan Fund Program, and other similar services, many low-income families and communities would be forced to go without such necessities as reliable access to environmentally sound wastewater solutions, clean drinking water, indoor plumbing, safe and affordable housing, community development and infrastructure needs, water/wastewater infrastructure solutions, and more. It is important to remember that even in the US in the 21st Century; there are those who do not have reliable access to clean, safe drinking water, environmentally sound septic facilities, and affordable housing. In order to help SERCAP continue to provide assistance to both the individuals and communities in need, please consider making a donation to SERCAP’s Water Life! Fund!
