Cost Share Program

Finished Grassed Waterway Project


Through the Cost Share Program, landowners can request financial and technical assistance for the implementation of approved conservation practices that protect and improve water quality by controlling soil erosion and reducing sedimentation.

This program provides up to 75 percent or a flat rate of the total eligible costs of a practice.  The SWCD Board of Supervisors approves or denies all cost share contract requests.  A contract between the SWCD and the landowner needs to be approved before the project can begin.

Some examples of practices include: Grass Waterways, Grade Stabilization Structures, Terraces, Water and Sediment Control Basins and Well Decommissioning .
