Requests for Proposals and Bids  

Request for Proposals 2015 WMB Funding - closed
The Lake County Stormwater Management Commission is now accepting Requests for Proposals for the FY 2015 Watershed Management Board (WMB) cost-share grant funding. The WMB grant program is open to WMB members which includes municipalities, drainage districts, county board districts, townships, homeowner associations, park districts, and non-profit groups.

The WMB grant cost-share grant program helps fund local stormwater projects. Eight Project Prioritization Criteria are considered by SMC staff in the evaluation of resource requests. The highest funding priority is flood damage prevention/mitigation but water quality improvement and natural resource restoration projects are also considered. There is a 50/50 cost-share requirement which can be in the form of funds, in-kind services or both.
