Cash for Grass Rebate Program
(Online Applications Only)
The Waterworks Districts offer customers a rebate for removing water-inefficient grass with drought-tolerant landscaping. Please be advised that the rebate is not available until after completion of the drought conversion project. This means customers will not receive a rebate until after the project is completed and post-inspected. The Cash for Grass program has been a successful program and has removed over 2,000,000 square feet of inefficient turf and replaced it with drought-tolerant, efficient landscaping. If you have any questions, please contact our Water Conservation Hotline at (626) 300-3313.
