USDA Making Progress on Recovery Act Dollars for Water Infrastructure

February 4, 2010
According to recent press releases from the USDA, the Rural Utilities Service which provides assistance to small and rural communities is making slow but steady progress getting Recovery Act Dollars processed and awarded to projects. According to USDA officials, approximately $3.7 billion in water infrastructure projects will be funded with USDA dollars in 2010.  AGC members pursuing USDA funded projects should be aware that the USDA requires the use of Engineering Joint Contract Documents Committee (EJCDC) standard form contract documents.  AGC of America is a sponsoring organization of EJCDC along with the National Society of Professional Engineers, the American Society of Civil Engineers, and the American Council of Engineering Companies.  For additional information about USDA Recovery Act activities click here.
