Greened Acre Retrofit Program

GARP funding is available to companies or project aggregators who are able to develop a stormwater management plan on properties that total at least 10 acres in project size located in Philadelphia’s combined sewer service area only. The aggregator will be the direct recipient of funds but must provide agreements or contracts with all participating property owners as part of the grant application. All property owners must execute an Operations and Maintenance Agreement with PWD, and the project aggregator must execute an Economic Opportunity Plan as part of the subgrant agreement. Competitive applications will reduce costs to PWD as much as possible. Once the project is constructed, participating property owners (or customers) will be eligible for credits against their stormwater charges.
