Cost-share programs for river-friendly landscaping
Your local watershed management organization or soil and water conservation district might be able to help fund or support your river-friendly landscaping project.
Since river-friendly landscaping brings great benefits to communities, grants and funding for the installation of raingardens, native gardens, permeable pavers, and other stormwater management practices are often available through watershed districts, management organizations and conservation districts.

- Capitol Region Watershed District's stewardship grants: Available to residents in portions of Falcon Heights, Lauderdale, Maplewood, Roseville and St. Paul
- Ramsey-Washington Metro Watershed District's stewardship grants: Available to residents in the eastern Twin Cities metro
