Green Roof Rebate -
Targeted Large Retrofit Program

426

DC has a new Green Roof Rebate Program - designed for existing buildings. Owners can apply for a $7/sq.ft. rebate for retrofits when they incorporate a green roof of at least 4,000 sq. ft. This innovative program provides subsidies of about 50% of average green roof costs providing benefits to property owners, the general public and the environment.
