GET TO KNOW:
The HIP Process
If you qualify for HIP, you could get reimbursed for projects that improve your property and protect the lake! Often, the project you choose includes landscaping improvements you already had planned or had always wanted to complete.
The process is easy: first, enter your address to see if you qualify. If you do, you’ll be provided with a selection of HIP-eligible projects that could be possible on your property, based on variables such as proximity to the shoreline or the average lot size in your neighborhood. If you like what you see and want to learn more, you can schedule an on-site consultation or register for a workshop. Your site-specific property improvements page will guide you to the resources most appropriate for you, based on project possibilities. If you decide to move forward, we’ll connect you to qualified professionals who, working closely with program staff on your behalf, will make the design and construction process simple and pain-free. Once your project is complete, your invoices and receipts will be collected and a reimbursement check will be sent directly to you.
Taking advantage of this program is truly a win-win for you and our community.
