The cost for work on Resilient St. Vrain is estimated between $120 million and $140 million. Note that this amount is not the City's portion of the cost, as it includes federal, state and other funding sources. Generally, for every dollar of cost, 75 cents is paid for by federal sources, with the remaining 25 cents divided between state and local sources.
Partial project funding is coming from a variety of sources, including:
- $20 million in voter-approved Storm Drainage Bonds
- Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
- Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)
- Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR)
- Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO)
- State and County funds
- Other existing City funds, including the 3/4-cent Street Fund sales and use tax renewed by voters in 2014.
The City of Longmont continues to actively seek grants and other financial partners to help fully fund the project. One of these partners is the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Learn more about the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers feasibility study that is now underway >
