The Soil and Water Resource Management (SWRM) Grant Program provides approximately $50,000 annually for the installation of conservation practices throughout Kenosha County.
In most cases, this program funds 70% of the cost of your construction project. Our office accepts applications year round for a variety of conservation practices. Please see ATCP 50.61 General standards for cost-shared practices under Chapter 92 Wisconsin Statutes.
