Tucson Water and SERI offer a grant / loan program for eligible families to help provide them with the opportunity for rainwater harvesting:
• Grants of up to $400 are available to families that have a household income less than or equal to 50% of the area median income (AMI).
• Loans of up to $1,500 are available to families that have a household income less than or equal to 80% of the AMI.
• SERI also offers a discounted rain barrel program to low-income families.
Rainwater harvesting is the capture, diversion, and storage of rainwater for plant irrigation. SERI (Sonoran Environmental Research, Inc.) has partnered with Tucson Water to modify the rebate program so that low-income families can participate.
