Financial Incentives: Urban Cost Share
The Urban Cost Share Program coordinates four separate cost share initiatives:
Blue Thumb Grants (BTG)
Citizen Conservation Stewards (CCS)
Conservation Initiative Funding (CIF)
Community Conservation Partnership (CCP)
Dakota County Soil and Water Conservation District staff use these initiatives to connect citizens, developers and local government with the educational, technical and financial support needed to put innovative stormwater management and conservation practices on the land. Many types of non-agricultural conservation practices to improve and protect water quality will qualify for program assistance.
