Agricultural financial assistance

The DNR offers financial assistance in the form of grants for local efforts to control nonpoint source pollution. These grants support both the implementation of source-area controls to prevent runoff contamination and the installation of treatment systems to remove pollutants from runoff. The main goal of the financial assistance is to improve the quality of Wisconsin’s water resources by decreasing the impacts of nonpoint pollution.

Cities, villages, towns, counties, regional planning commissions, tribal governments and special purpose districts such as lake, sewerage and sanitary districts are eligible to apply.
