State Cost Share

The State Cost-Share Program was created to provide funds to Soil and Water Conservation Districts to share the cost of systems or practices for erosion control, sedimentation control, or water quality improvements that are designed to protect and improve soil and water resources.  Through the State Cost-Share Program, land occupiers can request financial and technical assistance from their local District for the implementation of conservation practices.  Kittson SWCD priority resource concerns include surface water quality, drinking water quality and flood damage reduction.

Clean Water Fund 2011 Lake Bronson Watershed Runoff Reduction Grant - Phase I

On November 4, 2008, Minnesota voters approved the Clean Water, Land & Legacy Amendment to the constitution to:

- protect, enhance, and restore wetlands, prairies, forests, and fish, game, and wildlife habitat;
- preserve arts and cultural heritage;
- support parks and trails;
- and protect, enhance, and restore lakes, rivers, streams, and groundwater.

The Amendment increases the sales and use tax rate by three-eighths of one percent on taxable sales, starting July 1, 2009, continuing through 2034. Those dollars are dedicated to four funds: Outdoor Heritage Fund, Clean Water Fund, Parks and Trails Fund, and Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
