You live in an area where pipes, drains, ditches, and filters collect and manage runoff as part of your local jurisdiction’s stormwater program. You can help your community’s investment of tax dollars be more efficient and effective, and at the same time complete beautiful upgrades to your lot, by making landscaping improvements that protect water quality. While your project may not be the biggest in size, it is part of a larger effort that provides a benefit to our community and our environment.
Please scroll down to learn more about the types of projects available through HIP for your property that will make the greatest contribution to that mutual benefit.
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.
