The Cash for Grass Program offers monetary incentives for property owners in the Nipomo Mesa Water Conservation Area (NMWCA) and the Paso Robles Groundwater Basin (PRGWB) who are seeking to remove irrigated turf and replace it with approved low water using plants and groundcover.
Incentives are available to qualifying property owners on a first-come, first-served basis while funding is available. The Program generates water savings credits that can be purchased by applicants from within the same groundwater basin who need to meet water neutrality requirements for new construction. Funding availability is subject to change at any time.
