The City of Prairie Village has grants, rebates, and cost-share programs available to residents. Applications are open now for each of the following programs:
Cost-Share Reimbursement for rain gardens, pervious pavement, rain barrels, native trees
The City of Prairie Village receives annual grants from Johnson County for the Stormwater Treatment Facilities (STF) cost-share program. Last year’s grant amount was $5,000. This program is an innovative approach to controlling stormwater and improving water quality and aiding in reducing erosion. The program encourages individual homeowners and businesses to incorporate STFs (like rain gardens, pervious pavement, rain barrels, and native trees) on their property and is intended to help cover the cost of material and/or contractor labor to install such facilities. The program runs from April 1st to October 31st annually. Funding is available on a first come, first serve basis and is subject to applicable laws and provisions including but not limited to the City of Prairie Village Municipal Code. Learn more.
Property Tax Rebate
As part of the 2022 budget process, the Governing Body allocated $20,000 from the City’s general fund to a property tax rebate program designed to alleviate some of the burden of home ownership due to rising property values. Qualified residents will be reimbursed 100% of the City’s portion of property taxes, excluding special assessments. Learn more.
