Thanks to grant funding and the City of Palm Springs, some DWA low-income customers qualify for up to $8 per square foot to replace grass with drought friendly landscaping. Customers who meet the other criteria but do not live in City of Palm Springs can get up to $6 per square foot. Either amount could cover the entire cost to upgrade, which can save water & money on monthly water bills.
DWA encourages customers to apply as soon as possible to get access to this limited funding.
