PWD’s newest business assistance grant program encourages stormwater project aggregation!
Join the Philadelphia Water Department (PWD) on Monday, July 21st from 8:30-10:00 a.m. at 1101 Market St, 11th floor conference room to learn more about the newly launched Greened Acre Retrofit Program Grant (GARP).
GARP provides grant assistance to companies or contractors for stormwater projects on non-residential properties with a total project size of over 10 acres or larger located in Philadelphia’s combined sewer area. Currently, PWD is seeking applicants who are companies or project aggregators that can assemble large areas, often over multiple properties, for stormwater management projects. Properties undergoing redevelopment are not eligible for GARP funding. GARP applications will be evaluated by PWD staff based on a variety of criteria including total area managed, cost to PWD, quality of long-term maintenance plan, and availability of matching funds. GARP is now accepting applications. Applications can be submitted electronically to PIDC at any time and selected grantees will be issued a decision at the close of each fiscal quarter.
