Stormwater Grants

Lexington’s Stormwater Quality Projects Incentive Grant Program is now accepting applications for projects that reduce stormwater runoff, improve water quality and educate citizens about water issues in Lexington.

Applications are currently being accepted for all grants. The Water Quality Management Fee funds this program to provide financial assistance for neighborhoods, schools, businesses, nonprofits, and other organizations that pay the Water Quality Management Fee in Fayette County.

Class A Neighborhood Grants are available for Fayette County neighborhood, community, and homeowner associations representing single-family homeowners or farms. Neighborhood grants can fund rain gardens, rain barrels, stream bank restoration, neighborhood workshops and other projects that help improve or manage stormwater through education and infrastructure improvements.

Class B Education Grants are open to schools, churches, nonprofits, and owners and tenants of businesses that do not fall under the Class A Neighborhood Grants. The education grants have been used to fund the development of stormwater-related curricula for schools, outreach campaigns about water quality, workshops for the public and educational rain gardens.

Applications for neighborhood and education grants are due on Friday, May 3, 2024. First-time applicants are strongly encouraged to apply.
