Rainwater harvesting grant program under way

Up to 100% funding is available


The Upper Trinity Groundwater Conservation District has announced a new annual rainwater harvesting grant program for Montague, Wise, Parker, and Hood Counties.

UTGCD encourages organizations within the district area to consider the addition of rainwater harvesting systems to structures and organizational buildings.

Maintained systems significantly reduce groundwater usage, utility costs, erosion, and weathering of vegetative surfaces. The State of Texas publicly supports rainwater harvesting efforts while recognizing exemplary systems each year via the Texas Water Development Board.

There is no cost to apply to the program, and multiple systems may be granted within an application year. Up to 100% of funding is available to grantees, with multiple cost sharing options available as well.

The grant application period is open now and UTGCD will accept applications through Feb. 28, 2023.

To access application documents, video guides, and resources on rainwater harvesting, visit uppertrinitygcd.com.

Administratively complete applications will be graded via a numerical scoring rubric, available to applicants as part of program transparency.

Applicants will be able to track the status of their application via the district website. Organizations that fall into the below listed categories may apply. Interested parties can reach out to UTGCD to verify their eligibility.

Eligible entities and organizations include the following:

  • Cities;
  • Counties;

  • Emergency Service Districts;
  • Volunteer Fire Departments;
  • Non-profit organizations;
