Did you know the City of Rochester has a cost‐share grant program to assist in the creation of residential and community rain gardens? The 2017 Cost‐Share Program will award up to 7 grants for 50% of verifiable costs, up to a maximum of $750 per project! Eligible expenditures for reimbursement through the Cost‐Share Grant include the cost of rain garden design, plants, mulch soil amendment, related materials and labor. To be considered for a 2017 Cost‐Share Grant, rain gardens must be installed in 2017 on parcels within Rochester’s city limits and outside of utility and drainage easements or road rights‐of‐way. More information and Realize Rain Gardens Rochester Cost‐Share Grant Applications can be found at www.rochesterstormwater.com. This workshop is designed to help grant applicants understand and complete the Cost‐Share Grant Application.
