Rainwater Harvesting

Rainwater Catchment System Rebate Program

UGRA has a rebate program to promote water conservation and watershed stewardship through rainwater harvesting. The Rainwater Catchment System 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 incentive 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. Payment by UGRA is subject to the availability of funds. For more information, contact UGRA at (830) 896-5445.

Rainwater Catchment System Cost Assistance Program

The program is open to all individuals and entities interested in initiating a rainwater catchment system or expanding a current system in Kerr County.  A total of $2,500 is available each year (subject to board approval) 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 for the program from October 1 – November 30 and applicants will be notified of the results in January.
