Grants Available to Help Homeowners Replace Septic Systems

Steven Wright

ST. CLOUD – Funding to assist homeowners in replacing subsurface sewage treatment systems is available from the State of Minnesota.

The Stearns County Environmental Services Department can apply for grants on behalf of homeowners.

Eligibility for a grant requires that the homeowner have a low income, property homesteaded by the the applicant, and that the sewage treatment system is found to be an immediate threat to public health and safety.

These funds are available for a limited time. Residents of Stearns County who think they qualify should contact the Stearns County Environmental Services Department at 656-3613. Applications need to be completed and turned in by September 23rd.

In the last three years, Stearns County has received $900,000 to help low income homeowners replace their septic systems. It’s hoped that these grants will protect and restore water quality.
