Going Green/Rebates for Stormwater Management

In case you haven't heard the County's new Rain Check Rebate program website is up with a lot of good information. 

Rebates are available for homeowners and non-profit organizations in PG County who install:
  • Cisterns
  • Rain barrels
  • Pavement removal
  • Permeable pavers
  • Green roofs
  • Rain gardens 
  • Urban trees
There are also grants available for the installation of stormwater BMPs for non-profit or not-for-profit organizations. It is a competitive grants program subject to funding. Would be good to think about low-hanging fruit from the Green Infrastructure Plan or on the City's to do list and be in the running early for these funds.
Mount Rainier residents are encouraged to check out the website, but also to take advantage of what we already do to preserve our planet!
