Project Overview

The Crow Wing Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) proposes to partner with citizen groups and nonprofit groups to complete projects that will reduce polluted runoff and keep water on the land in Crow Wing County's (CWC) 125 minor watersheds. To do this, the SWCD will implement a mini grant program and provide competitive grant funds to an anticipated 12 groups. Citizens groups will use their innovation and creativity to apply for project funds through the SWCD. The project will build upon past successes and will include an extensive program evaluation, an interagency review panel to score applications, use media resources, provide technical assistance, complete site inspections, and utilize civic engagement principles.
