S.C. Rural Infrastructure Authority approves $12M in grants.

The S.C. Rural Infrastructure Authority has approved grants for 27 S.C. communities totaling more than $12 million for water, sewer and stormwater projects, as well as economic programs.

Two-thirds of the projects are in rural and less-developed counites, according to a news release.

"The RIA supports community projects with the greatest need and addresses infrastructure issues that have the potential to hinder quality of life and economic growth," Bonnie Ammons, executive director of the authority, said in the release.

RIA grants are awarded twice a year in a competitive process that factors in public health, environmental protection, community sustainability and economic development considerations. Selection criteria include severity of the problem, expected impact of improvements and project feasibility.

Recipients provide funds for non-construction activities and additional funds for construction if necessary. For more information, visit ria.sc.gov.
