The Rock Island Drainage Assistance Program (RIDAP) was created to build a partnership between the City and private property owners who have damage on their property caused by storm water from more than just their property.
If a contractor performs the work, the RIDAP will contribute up to 75% of the project cost not to exceed $3,000 per property.
If a property owner performs the work, the RIDAP will reimburse 75% of the material costs only, not to exceed $3,000 per property.
Applications will be taken on an on-going basis until all allocated funding has been spent during that fiscal year. The City will notify the property owners if they were accepted into the RIDAP.
Construction will need to be completed within six months or forfeit the RIDAP resources.
