On this page you will find information about current capital and grant projects, community and local projects as well as emergency projects.  

Capital & Grant Projects

The City seeks to leverage funding for the design and construction of larger stormwater related capital projects by applying for and securing federal, state, and local grants. The availability of grants is often based on several factors, including recent federal disaster declarations, state initiatives, conservation programs, etc., and most grant programs are competitive in nature. Typically a local match, in the form of dollars or in-kind contributions, is required. The City seeks grant funding through several agencies/programs including the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Colorado Watershed Protection program (CWP), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), and others. The projects below have been secured/awarded and will be completed in the near future. The matching dollars or in-kind contributions are available and budgeted.
