The Minnesota Clean Water Fund has given the Stearns County Environmental Services Department grant money to help lower-income households with the cost of bringing their septic systems into compliance.

To qualify, residents must be low-income, have a subsurface sewage treatment system that is non-compliant, own the property, live at the property and it must be homesteaded.

The funding is limited and will be given out on a first-come-first-served basis.

You can apply through the Stearns County website or by calling the Environmental Services Department at (320) 656-3613.
