Once a Yard Smart expert conducts a consultation on your property, we will send you a written report that includes a list of site-specific projects to reduce runoff from your property. As a participant in the Yard Smart Rain Rewards program, you are eligible to receive funding to install these small-scale projects on your property.
You can install more the one project on your property. Program rebates depend on the type of property you own and whether the work was done yourself, or by a contractor.
For Single Family Homes,
we will cover 75% of project costs up to $3,500 for work done by contractors, or 100% of project costs up to $3,500 for DIY projects.
For Multi-Family Homes & Non-Residential Properties
(commercial, industrial, non-profit, churches, etc), we will cover 75% of project costs up to $7,000.
- After your project is installed, inform City of Kirkland staff (at firstname.lastname@example.org) that it is ready to be inspected.
- City staff will inspect your project(s) and send an email indicating approval of the installation, or any necessary changes.
- After receiving approval, submit a fully completed Project Rebate Packet (pdf), along with required attachments.
- A rebate check for the installed project(s) will be issued within one month from when your completed Project Rebate Packet is received by the City of Kirkland.
