Apply for Lawns to Legumes Assistance

To apply for individual assistance, please fill out the form on this page, and thoroughly read through the program criteria and the Resident Agreement.

The second round of applications, for fall 2020 projects, is open through June 2.

Please note: Free technical guidance resources are available online to all landowners.

All Minnesota residents are eligible to apply for a $350 cost-share in order to establish pollinator habitat in their yards. Applications will be chosen through a randomized drawing, though priority will be given to projects within higher priority areas (see priority map), and to equitable geographic distribution.

*Please note that applying for Lawns to Legumes cost-share funding does not guarantee you will receive funding. If your application is awarded funding it will be in the form of a reimbursement. We will work with awardees unable to afford the upfront cost of a project to find a way to still participate in the program.

Please fill out your information and then under “Resident Agreement” please read the program criteria and click “agree” if you find each criterion acceptable.


Please double-check the email address you provided. A copy of your application will be sent there upon submission.
