Cost Share Grants
The URRWMO offers small cost share grants to landowners for projects that will correct erosion problems, filter runoff to waterbodies, or restore native vegetation adjacent to a stream or river in the URRWMO jurisdictional area. Typical projects include:
• lakeshore restorations with native vegetation,
• lakeshore erosion correction,
• streambank erosion correction, and
• rain gardens.
In order to receive these funds, the project must result in public benefits by improving water quality in area lakes and streams.
Staff at the Anoka Conservation District (ACD) offer assistance designing these types of projects for a small fee. Design assistance offered includes choosing appropriate techniques, materials, plants, as well as providing a detailed plan with cost estimate. ACD staff can provide guidance throughout the project.
Grant applications are accepted at any time through the Anoka Conservation District's (ACD) water quality cost share program. For more information, including policies and the application, go to ACD's Website.
