The Lake Whatcom Homeowner Incentive Program (HIP) offers technical and financial support to Lake Whatcom watershed homeowners to install native landscaping that improves yards and protects the lake.
Please scroll down to learn more about the HIP projects available for your property that will make the greatest contribution to lake protection.
To get started, register for a workshop and review custom landscape designs you can implement on your own property!
Note: Additional incentives are available for property owners who live directly on the Lake Whatcom lake shore, have creeks on their property, or have very large lawn areas. If you believe you might qualify for these additional benefits, we can check your eligibility on your behalf. Please email us by using the “Contact Us” link at the bottom of this page.
