Green roof at American University’s Mary Graydon Center.
Green roofs play an essential role in protecting, preserving and restoring our watershed. Covered with soil media and plants, green roofs provide tremendous benefits for our communities, neighborhoods and individual property owners. Through the District’s Green Roof Rebate Program we’ve helped fund the installation of over 60,000 s.f. of new green roofs, and with your help, we’ll install even more.

Green Roofs offer numerous benefits. Some of these include:

We are currently accepting applications for the District's new green roof rebate program which provides base funding of $5 for every square foot of planted area. Rebates are available for new green roofs on existing buildings of any size and new construction projects that add a green roof to go above and beyond their requirements for a stormwater management permit.
Register your planned green roof project with the form below to begin the application process. We will send an application form once we receive your completed registration form. Projects will be placed in the rebate funding queue when AWS receives a completed application form with all supporting documents.
