Grants & Incentives

The City of Lancaster offers a variety of grants and incentives to accelerate the installation and maintenance of green infrastructure.



Stormwater Residential Grant Program

The City of Lancaster’s Stormwater Residential Grant Program promotes small scale green infrastructure projects, like rain gardens, permeable pavers, and dry wells, that absorb stormwater runoff on residential property. Save and improve water quality on your property, in the City, and downstream to the Conestoga River. See below for resources for the Stormwater Residential Grant Program.


Stormwater Fee Credits

Stormwater credits are available to all Property Owners and can help reduce your stormwater fee up to 50%. Residents and businesses can install a green infrastructure technology on their property to manage their stormwater; credits are granted based on the effectiveness and capacity of the technology. Schools can also apply for credits for providing classroom instruction on stormwater to students. For more information on stormwater credits refer to the Policies and Procedures Manual under the Documents & Resources tab below.
