Turf Rebates Still Available Through State Program

Rebates of up to $2,000 are still available for removing turf and replacing it with water-wise landscapes through a program administered by the California Department of Water Resources.

The $24 million program budget is expected to support the conversion of more than 10 million square-feet of turf, or approximately 20% of the statewide goal of 50 million square-feet of turf. Up to $2 per square foot of removed and replaced turf will be rebated per eligible household.

The total rebated amount, including any rebates the homeowner has already applied for from another agency, can't exceed a total of $2 per square foot. Fifty percent of funding will go to applicants in disadvantaged communities in high- and medium-priority groundwater basins. For more information visit www.saveourwaterrebates.com
