Rain Garden/Rain Barrel Incentive Program

Since 2009 The Greater Elkhart County Stormwater Partnership has been helping homeowners install rain gardens and rain barrels in most of Elkhart County. For homeowners who qualify, the program can reimburse up to $250 for rain garden plants and $50 for rain barrels. The program comes as a result of stakeholder input into the Partnership’s stormwater fee. The program is open to anyone in Elkhart, Goshen, Bristol, or unincorporated areas of Elkhart County.

You Want to Do Your Part. We Want to Help.

 The application is available at the Elkhart County SWCD office or at the links below. Approval will be given on a first-come, first-served basis while funds last.

In order to qualify for reimbursement, applicants must also attend a workshop on rain gardens and rain barrels.
