Rebates for Rain Gardens and Cisterns
RainWise is a rebate program that helps property owners manage stormwater by installing cisterns and/or rain gardens on private property. This prevents flooding, adds attractive landscaping, and can provide water for summer irrigation. To receive a rebate, you must live in an eligible combined sewer overflow (CSO) basin.
RainWise was recently featured by the Adrienne Arsht-Rockefeller Foundation Resilience Center as part of the new US Climate Resilience Map.
Check to see whether your property is eligible for a RainWise rebate for a cistern, a rain garden or both.
RainWise-trained contractors are ready to work in your neighborhood. Finding a RainWise contractor you want to hire is how to make your RainWise project happen.
Learn about the program and meet neighbors, contractors and other experts. All RainWise events are currently being held virtually.
