NOTE:  LOWA’s existing grant has ended.  Our new grant will begin August 1, 2021.  You may submit an application and request Board Approval anytime.  However, the work must not begin until August 1, 2021 or later.  Work begun prior to August 1 will not be eligible for grant support.

If your property is within this boundary, you could be eligible for Grant funds to support one of three projects which protect lake water quality.

Low Impact Landscaping

Use of Missouri native plants, terracing, and buffer strips serve to protect soil erosion and storm runoff. To determine eligibility, contact us to receive a free visit from a Trained Volunteer Evaluator. If eligible, our Grant program pays 20% of the first $5,000 (maximum $1,000) and our rip rap partners offer eligible homeowners an additional 5% of the first $5,000 (maximum $250).

Septic System Pumpout
