State Cost Share Program

The purpose of this program is to provide grants to Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCDs) so they can help local landowners or land occupiers offset the costs of installing local conservation practices that protect and improve water quality by controlling soil erosion and reducing sedimentation. Through the State Cost-Share Program, landowners or occupiers can request financial and technical assistance from their local SWCD to implement state-approved conservation practices.

There are currently 12 approved conservation practices including Critical Area Stabilization, Diversions, Grassed Waterway, Rotational Grazing, Culvert Outlet Protection, Grade Stabilizations, Waste Water and Feedlot Runoff Control, Sediment Basins, Streambank, Shoreland and Roadside Protection, Strip cropping, and Terraces.
