About the program 

This program provides financial assistance for projects that protect and restore the lakes and streams in the Carver County Water Management Organization. 

Common projects include rain gardens, shoreline restorations, native plantings, water retention and water reuse systems and more. Pollinator habitat projects can receive funding through the Carver Soil & Water Conservation Districts pollinator cost share program

This program is available to citizens and private businesses located within the Carver County Water Management Organization boundaries.  Some areas of the County are located outside the CCWMO boundaries and managed by other water management organizations such as Riley Purgatory Bluff Creek Watershed District or Lower MN River Watershed District.

Financial assistance 

The program will cover 75% of eligible costs up to a maximum reimbursement of $5000.  This is a competitive grant program, with the possibility of grant requests not obtaining funding.  If the annual funding for a fiscal year is depleted, project applications for the year will be held over to the following year.  These projects will be prioritized by the date in which the application was turned in.


Applications are available here and accepted year round for review.
