Contain the Rain: Stormwater Cost Share Program applications now open

Did you know the City will help cover materials and labor costs to install certain stormwater treatment projects?

Overland Park’s Stormwater Cost Share Program, Contain the Rain, encourages residents and business owners to incorporate stormwater management strategies that capture, slow down or soak up stormwater, reducing runoff and improving water quality.

Eligible projects include:

  • Rain and pollinator gardens,
  • Rain barrels,
  • Native tree plantings,
  • Permeable pavement,
  • Soil restoration and more!

After applying, please wait for email confirmation and approval before beginning your project. Once your project is complete, City staff will ask you to share before and after photos of your project along with any receipts before receiving reimbursement funds.

Funding is available on a first-come, first-served basis and is subject to the approval of the Public Works Department. Learn more about the Stormwater Cost Share Program and submit your application at
