The Chesapeake Bay Trust is proud to partner with Prince George’s County on its Rain Check Rebate Program, offering incentives to homeowners, businesses, and others to install practices that will improve stormwater runoff quality, reduce runoff quantity, and improve local streams and rivers.
Program Status: This program is currently OPEN. Funds are available on a first come, first served basis, and demand for the program this fiscal year has been high.
What this funds: The Rain Check Rebate Program provides eligible applicants the opportunity to receive a reimbursement for installing approved stormwater management practices. Homeowners, businesses, and nonprofit entities can recoup some of the costs of installing practices covered by the program. At this time, Bowie property owners are not eligible to participate in this program.
How much can be awarded: Up to $4,000 for residential property owners; up to $20,000 for institutional properties, commercial properties, multi-family dwellings, nonprofit, and not-for-profit organizations, homeowners associations, condominium associations, and civic associations. Projects whose costs exceed the rebate cap must have separate funding to pay for the difference.
Are you a Non-Profit working on Residential Property?: Non-profits working with residential property owners to install Rain Check Rebate Practices may be eligible for grant funding to receive pre-construction funds. Contact the Rain Check Coordinator to discuss this option before applying. For more information and to apply: click here.
