DuPage County’s Stormwater Management Department accepted grant proposals from municipalities for flood control and water quality projects countywide. The selected projects will be partially funded using an allocation of DuPage County’s American Recovery Plan Act (ARPA) funding from the federal government.

Open to municipal governments, DuPage County’s grant will award funding to shovel-ready projects that demonstrate flood protection and resilience measures. The County will provide a 50/50 cost-share of up to $500,000 per awarded project. The grant encourages projects that build resilience and offer strong multi-jurisdictional and multi-purpose benefits. This grant program will distribute an estimated $8 million of that funding.

Among the grant recipients is the Village of Addison for the LaLonde-Diversey Avenue Drainage Project, which has a cost estimate of $400,000. The requested grant share is $200,000.
