County offers septic system upgrade assistance program

Crow Wing County received $2,500 in grant funds from the Minnesota Board of Water & Soil Resources to provide funding to replace or protect septic systems for low-income residents.

Crow Wing County received $2,500 in grant funds from the Minnesota Board of Water & Soil Resources to provide funding to replace or protect septic systems for low-income residents.

Residents who receive funding will be provided a loan from the Region Five Development Commission at 3 percent interest for 60 months for the cost of the project. The terms of the loans are set by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture.

The total funds awarded to an applicant will depend on the cost of the system, yearly income and size of the household. Loans can be paid off at any time with no pre-payment penalty. A $50 application fee is required, which is used to offset the cost of obtaining a credit report.

Priority for funding will first be given to low- and very low-income landowners. All need-based low-income applicants will be funded to some degree, pending repayment ability as determined by the North Central Economic Development Association loan board. Visit www.northcentraleda.org/homeowner for an application.

Those interested in learning more about the program, or who would like to receive a paper application, contact the Crow Wing County Land Services Department at 218-824-1010 or via email at land.services@crowwing.us .
