Rainwater Catchment Rebate Program

The goal of the rebate program is to promote water conservation and watershed stewardship through rainwater harvesting. The Rainwater Catchment Rebate Program is available to anyone with a Kerr County address and will reimburse eligible applicants up to $200 when they provide proof of purchase of rainwater catchment system equipment. Each address is eligible once per calendar year.

This rebate program is open to businesses or individuals in Kerr County. Proof of purchase for rainwater catchment system equipment must be dated within the last 12 months.  Equipment must be installed before rebate payment can be processed. Payment by UGRA is subject to the availability of funds.

Large Rainwater System Incentive Program - currently under review

The program is open to all individuals and entities interested in initiating a large rainwater catchment system or expanding a current system in Kerr County.  A total of $2,500 is available each year to be granted to one or more recipients.  A judging panel will review the applications against program criteria in order to determine which project(s) will be funded.

UGRA will accept applications from January 1st to November 30th each year and applicants will be notified of the results during January of the following year.

The 2021 application term has not yet opened because the program is currently being reviewed by the UGRA Board of Directors.  Please check back after April 1, 2021 for updates.  The following 2020 guidelines and application are provided for reference.
