MPCA Flood Impact Grants

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) has invested $500,000 in eight Greater Minnesota communities, including two in SE Minnesota, to help protect homes and businesses from flooding and other impacts.

The grants range from $27,000 to $156,000 each to help cities upgrade their infrastructure for extreme weather caused by climate change.

City of Lake City will use a $71,000 grant to develop an inventory of its existing storm drains to assess flood risks and make recommendations for stormwater infrastructure improvements.

City of Wabasha will use a $55,000 grant to understand how they can bolster city transportation systems and other infrastructure to prevent disruptions during large flooding events in the spring and summer around the Mississippi River.
