1. Rural water quality projects, including acquisition, treatment, distribution, and recovery of water for consumption by humans or animals or both
2. Rural solid waste disposal, treatment or similar projects
3. Rural sanitary sewer construction or improvement projects
4. Rural road or street construction or improvement projects
