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 $500 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

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 $5,000 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 is accepting applications on a continuous basis.  The award decision for 2023 will be made in January 2023 and will consider all applications received from February 15, 2022 - November 30, 2022.
