Cost-Share Program

Have you ever wanted to make a positive impact on your own land and the entire ecosystem? Now you have the chance to do it without using too much of your funds. A 319 Grant was awarded to the Wayne County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) to reduce non-point source water pollutants. The grant is responsible for funding the Whitewater River Initiative for Implementing Best Management Practices (BMP’s) to generate better water quality in the West Fork of the Whitewater River Watershed. The grant will provide funds and services to alleviate the problems only in the priority areas of the watershed, which can be found on the map below.  If you  cannot determine if you are in a Priority Area please contact Cara Tegeler, Watershed Coordinator at 765-966-0191 EXT 3. The deadline for applications is on July 1, 2017. For more information please click on the links below.
