Environmental stewardship grants are available to help fund eco-friendly gardens and landscape projects that promote environmental stewardship, improve air quality, build soil structure and provide habitat for pollinators and wildlife. Eco-friendly projects also improve Bloomington’s neighborhoods and community.

The grants are intended to support projects that:

  • Increase the capacity of the watershed to store or infiltrate water.

  • Improve water quality by reducing the nutrients and sediments that flow into lakes, streams, wetlands and rivers.

  • Preserve, protect and restore native ecosystems and wildlife habitats.

Typically, grants are awarded to cover up to 50-75% of a project’s cost for professional consultation, engineering, labor and materials.

A list of available grants can be found at For more assistance, contact Engineering at 952-562-4870.
