Applications Open for Stormwater Management Cost-Share Program

Stormwater Management Cost-Share Program

Homeowners looking for financial assistance to help resolve a stormwater issue may be eligible for funding through the City's new cost-share program. 

The City Council recently approved the establishment of a new Stormwater Management Cost-Share Program for Creve Coeur residents. The goal of the program is to help neighborhoods and individual homeowners solve stormwater issues that are unlikely to be addressed by a City-funded project or receive funding from existing programs.

The program will have two categories: neighborhoods and individual homeowners. The neighborhoods category will help subdivisions maintain the capacity and performance of stormwater detention basins. The individual homeowner category will help individual homeowners maintain existing stormwater maintenance installation or install small projects like rain gardens or bioswales.

The program will be funded by the Parks and Stormwater Sales Tax. The first year of the program will be the pilot phase with project funding limited to $60,000. Through the program, neighborhoods and individual homeowners who have their applications approved will be reimbursed 50% of total cost, up to the maximum limits for each program category.

The Stormwater Committee’s recommended projects will be presented to the City Council for final approval.
