City staff review applications and typically make decisions regarding grant awards by mid-May. All applicants will be notified by email (by regular mail if no email address is given) whether or not their projects were awarded a grant.
We receive numerous grant applications every year, so not every qualifying project will receive a grant award. When reviewing grant applications, we identify proposed projects that would have the most direct benefit to enhancing water quality. Well-planned, detailed projects with a high level of positive impact to water quality will be prioritized for receiving grants.
Below are proposed project details that we look for when we review applications.
Shoreline restoration or buffer
Native plant garden or native planting (e.g. prairie)
