Stormwater Management
2017 Cost Share Application

Program Conditions and Instructions

The City of Lenexa is partnering with the Johnson County Stormwater Management Program to provide $15,000 for a stormwater management cost-share program. The program is intended to help cover the cost of materials and/or contractor labor to install such projects. The City of Lenexa will provide a 75 percent match, up to $1,500, for rain gardens or native plantings, and a 75 percent match for rain barrels, up to $110.

Funding is available to applicants on a first come, first served basis, and applications will be considered in the order they are received. Funding will not be allowed for green infrastructure projects that are required to meet stormwater management on new and redeveloped sites.

Lenexa staff is available to help answer any questions you have as you work through the application. DO NOT start your project until Lenexa staff has accepted your application and granted project approval. If you have questions about the program, email us at
