Grants the City has received
In 2011, the City received a total of $11,345,738 in grants to supplement projects and operations in Public Works, Police, Fire, and Recreation.  These funds have enhanced the community in a variety of ways such as by helping limit the increases to utility rates by providing  funding for rehabilitating the water and sewer systems, and they have also provided quality of life amenities such as the Undine Park Splashpad. 

In 2013, the City received the biggest grant award ever made by the Wyoming Business Council.  Funds to construct the Cirrus Sky Technology Park will install infrastructure to accommodate technology businesses and data centers on the northern ridge of the community and also will enable the City to purchase the land along the ridge to dedicate to a public trail system. The link at the left of the page details this project and the grant more specifically.

The City has also applied for a Brownfields Assessment grant from the EPA to evaluate potential contamination along the Spring Creek Channel.  This project was precipitated by citizens concerned about the possibility of dredging the channel to enhance it's hydraulic carry capacity for storm water run-off.  Since the channel was established, it has become not only a conveyance for storm water, but also a recreational asset and habitat for area wildlife.  As you can see in the grant application listed under the link on the left of this page, the project will engage citizen stakeholders in a comprehensive evaluation of the channel to identify potential contamination from gypsum mining and railroad activities.  If remediation is required, the project can be rolled into a more holistic approach that will preserve and enhance this channel for multiple purposes.

Many other grants applications have been made by and awarded to the City that are underway.  If you have questions about grants not listed here, please call the grants office at 307-721-5201.
