The Urban Cost Share Program coordinates four separate cost share initiatives:
Landscaping for Clean Water Grants
Citizen Conservation Stewards (CCS)
Conservation Initiative Funding (CIF)
Community Conservation Partnership (CCP)
Native Prairie Restoration Program
Dakota County Soil and Water Conservation District staff use these initiatives to connect citizens, developers and local government with the educational, technical and financial support needed to put innovative stormwater management and conservation practices on the land. Many types of non-agricultural conservation practices to improve and protect water quality will qualify for program assistance.
