Despite recent wet weather, many Californians are still suffering from the effects of the drought. Some rural homeowners are even dealing with wells that have gone dry.

The United States Department of Agriculture is now providing some assistance to low-income homeowners for well repairs or replacements.

Low interest loans will be offered to qualifying homeowner's thanks to a $254,000 grants from USDA Rural Development.

The RCAC will give the loans to qualifying homeowners living in rural areas with populations up to 50,000 and earning $62,883 or less.

"The drought has had a huge impact on folks with private wells. We are very pleased to work with USDA to finance the replacement of failed wells and help mitigate the drought's impact," said Stanley Keasling, RCAC's chief executive officer.

Interested applicants should contact Cyndy Elliott with RCAC at or (209) 576-0430.
