Cost-Share Program

The White River Alliance does not currently have cost-share funding available for the implementation of Best Management Practices (BMPs) that work to reduce non-point source water pollution. Although the Alliance currently does not have funding available, we encourage the installation of BMPs whenever possible.  The funding was made available through an Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) 319 grant  and ended in January 2015.
Funding is available for both agricultural and urban practices, although the program’s main focus is on urban practices. Fundable practices include such projects as:
  • Rain Garden 2

    Residential Rain Garden near Fishers

    Rain Gardens
  • Green Roofs
  • Bioswales
  • Porous/Permeable Pavement
  • Wetland Creation or Restoration
  • Filter Strips
  • Grassed Waterways
  • Cover Crops
If you are a landowner within a priority area of the Upper White River Watershed, we encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities. We have team members ready to work with you to plan your projects and help you find appropriate contractors. Please review the cost-share document, then go to our applications page and follow the directions there. At any time, you may contact shaena@thewhiteriveralliance.org with any questions.
