Wisconsin: 3 Ways to Pay for Your Infrastructure Improvements

Are you planning for infrastructure projects or park and recreation improvements? Here are three programs available that could help make them possible.

The three programs can help pay for:

  • Storm water management planning
  • Outdoor park and recreation improvements
  • Certain infrastructure and planning projects

Below, you’ll find the funding sources and their application due dates.

  • WDNR Urban Non-Point Source and Stormwater (UNPS) – Planning – Due April
  • Get up to 50% funding for urban area stormwater management planning.
  • WDNR Stewardship Program – Due May
  • Get up to 50% funding for your outdoor park and recreation improvements.
  • Community Development Block Grant – Public Facilities and Planning – Due mid-late May
  • Get up to 50% funding for eligible infrastructure and planning projects.

The key to success? Apply early

If you want to capitalize on these opportunities, start the application process early. While you may be several months from embarking on construction projects, each program requires cost estimates, pre-planning and some actions to be taken by your municipality, so the deadline to receive funding for those projects is now.
