Planning grants for stormwater, wastewater, and community resilience - Due 12/14

Apply for a grant to prepare your community for the impacts of climate change

The effects of climate change are being felt across the state, from overwhelmed infrastructure and damaged property to excessive heat and other health threats.

Minnesota state government is partnering with local leaders to develop climate-adaptation plans so that we are ready for what lies ahead. The MPCA has $750,000 available to support climate-planning projects in communities across Minnesota. 

This funding will help communities assess vulnerabilities and plan for the effects of Minnesota’s changing climate in three areas:

  • Improving stormwater resilience and reducing localized flood risk. 
  • Improving the resilience of wastewater systems. 
  • Reducing human health effects and adapting community services, ordinances, and public spaces. 

Tribal nations, cities, counties, towns/townships, soil and water conservation districts, water management organizations, and water districts are eligible to apply. Applications are due no later than 4 p.m. on Thursday, December 14, 2023

Any questions about this grant must be submitted to with the subject line “FY 24 Planning Grants for SWC Resilience” no later than  4 p.m. on Monday, December 11, 2023.
