Rural Water - Quarter 2, 2008 - (Page 30)

Funding Rural America’s Water and Wastewater Needs THROUGHOUT HISTORY, often the works of men and women are well known, while the men and women who did the work remain unknown. A prime example of this is Mount Rushmore; the huge faces of Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson and Roosevelt that gaze down upon us. But how many people know who the sculptor was? USDA Rural Development Water and Environmental Programs Today, the work of USDA’s Rural Utilities Service (RUS) and Rural Development (RD), at the state level, is well known. It’s the multitude of projects they fund that brings us drinking water each and every day as well as protecting our environment through Rural Development (RD) funded waste treatment plants. Over the years, many people have played a critical role in the success of the best lending program in government. While their names may not be listed, they can look at this list and feel great pride in their work, knowing they played a major role in improving the quality of life in rural areas and small town America. Our industry is facing increased infrastructure needs to replace aging infrastructure, expand service areas and upgrade treatment processes. This list is just a snapshot of the number of current customers, loans and closed loan amounts. However, it does not reflect the thousands of borrowers who have paid off their loans. RUS has been the primary provider of rural loans and grants and will continue to be there in the future. RUS has approximately $2.5 billion of loan applications ready to be funded and an additional $1.5 billion of pre-applications on fi le. One of those applications could be yours, your town’s or your community’s. So, be sure to say a sincere thank you to your state rural development staff and be sure to let your congressional representatives know that the work they do is essential to our rural areas of America. 30 • Second Quarter 2008 WEP Existing Loan Data by State Existing Customers: 7,897 # of Existing Loans: 16,779 Total Amount of Existing Loans: $9,556,192,208 ALABAMA ALASKA ARIZONA ARKANSAS CALIFORNIA COLORADO CONNECTICUT DELAWARE FLORIDA GEORGIA GUAM HAWAII IDAHO ILLINOIS INDIANA IOWA KANSAS KENTUCKY LOUISIANA MAINE MARYLAND MASSACHUSETTS MICHIGAN MINNESOTA MISSISSIPPI MISSOURI MONTANA NEBRASKA NEVADA NEW HAMPSHIRE NEW JERSEY NEW MEXICO NEW YORK NORTH CAROLINA NORTH DAKOTA OHIO OKLAHOMA OREGON 173 9 68 396 246 101 20 13 135 151 1 5 154 283 213 124 124 265 335 107 52 75 211 198 528 251 83 131 38 59 49 84 302 180 46 216 281 140 371 15 112 888 470 148 38 34 325 297 1 6 246 603 376 381 204 797 760 226 142 167 378 309 1433 437 136 204 82 91 107 137 628 328 89 480 588 243 203,087,737 8,608,500 48,357,202 358,745,314 376,611,718 61,388,978 24,127,856 67,176,700 261,457,628 199,661,498 1,033,400 7,625,600 89,200,664 304,286,202 312,035,369 265,222,905 102,662,979 448,144,678 332,910,263 114,142,788 101,311,153 117,471,028 358,088,625 154,061,740 383,769,946 190,326,541 58,074,203 78,219,920 47,918,398 72,978,925 125,960,426 31,689,583 280,991,046 444,489,510 60,467,155 425,355,512 192,873,980 203,803,825 PENNSYLVANIA 180 306 361,191,542 PUERTO RICO 52 239 187,467,000 RHODE ISLAND 12 34 13,123,362 SOUTH CAROLINA 119 452 263,593,320 SOUTH DAKOTA 124 264 119,770,582 TENNESSEE 293 752 348,183,970 TEXAS 492 975 470,447,318 UTAH 89 129 39,358,715 VERMONT 87 127 72,328,010 VIRGINIA 114 299 207,706,394 WASHINGTON 163 282 132,884,171 WEST VIRGINIA 174 424 285,879,970 WISCONSIN 121 184 127,295,224 WYOMING 30 35 12,623,135 TOTALS 7897 16779 9,556,192,208 © Alinoubigh | Dreamstime.com http://Dreamstime.com
