City Programs

Contain The Rain JoCo (BMP Tree Program - Native Tree Planting Program)

The City received a grant in 2024 from the County to encourage residents to plant new native trees, rain barrels, and rain gardens.  Before any work is done, the homeowner must apply to Contain The Rain, describing the project.  If a homeowner's application is approved, the City will reimburse half the cost of the tree, up to $150.00, and a 50% match, up to $1,000.00 for the rain gardens, with a maximum of one per household. There is a limited amount of money, and first come, first served.  All projects and or installations must be completed with all final documentation submitted by November 30, 2024.

Program Requirements can be found here.
