Fort Wayne City Utilities has developed a program to help you build and maintain a rain garden at home. A direct cash payment is available to help you with some of the costs of plants or other rain garden needs. Incentives are only available to residential properties inside the City of Fort Wayne.

There are four general requirements for the incentive program. Home owners must:
  1. Complete an Application and submit it to the City
  2. Attend a free instructional workshop-- click here for dates. Following the workshops, technical assistance will be provided by City staff members and the Allen County Master Gardeners if requested.
  3. Sign an Agreement to install and maintain a rain garden -- these will be available at the workshops and may be signed then. Plant match certificates will be given at the workshop. Cash payments will be mailed following the workshops.
  4. Register Your Garden
