Turf Replacement Rebate

Program Overview

REPLACE YOUR TURF GRASS AND RECEIVE A REBATE OF UP TO $2,000!

The Department of Water Resources (DWR) has a rebate program for removing turf and replacing it with landscapes that require little water at California single-family residences to support the State's drought response. For more information on the program's history, go to the DWR turf site at www.water.ca.gov/Work-With-Us/Grants-And-Loans/Turf-Replacement.

The $24 million program budget is expected to support the conversion of more than 10 million square feet of turf, or approximately 20 percent of the statewide goal of 50 million square feet of turf. Up to $2 per square foot of removed and replaced turf will be rebated per eligible household. The total rebated amount, including any rebates the homeowner has already applied for from another agency, can't exceed a total of $2 per square foot.
