Worthley Pond Association members are eligible for a grant when they make improvements to their property which are recommended by a LakeSmart evaluator. These improvements are necessary to reduce or eliminate the flow of water entering Worthley Pond off one’s land. These waters carry phosphorus laden soil and often pollutants which reduce the quality of water we now enjoy.
To qualify for a grant, a landowner must submit receipts to the Worthley Pond Association for materials and labor involved in the improvement. Property owners will be reimbursed for 50% of their expenses, up to $300.00 (thus a maximum grant amount of $150.00). Each year, the WPA officers authorized a specific number of grants. This is a one time grant and will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis. Owners can reapply the following year if they do not receive a grant, but work must be done in same year grant is applied for. Currently members can only receive one grant.
