DNR Aquatic Habitat Program provides cost share for habitat restoration


Conservation groups, lake associations and local governments can help improve fish habitat and water quality through a Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) grants program.

The DNR's Aquatic Habitat Program provides cost-share grants for the purpose of improving and protecting lakeshore habitat and water quality. Since 1998, the program has funded more than 330 shoreline restorations and provided technical guidance to thousands of citizens and local units of government.
