Stormwater Grants Program

The Philadelphia Water Department (PWD) partners with PIDC to offer stormwater grants to fund the design and construction of stormwater retrofit projects on commercial, industrial, multifamily and institutional properties.

Stormwater retrofit projects filter and absorb stormwater runoff from hard surfaces like parking lots and rooftops. PWD and PIDC award more than $15 million in stormwater grants every year.

What do I get?

• An opportunity to add new landscaping, fix drainage problems, and improve the appearance of your property.
• Lower the stormwater charge on your monthly bill.
• Personal assistance from PWD to guide you through the process.

What do I have to do?

• Choose a vendor to design and construct the project.
• Apply for funding.
• Commit to maintain the stormwater retrofit project after it is complete.
