Rain garden

Fishers is committed to promoting water quality and adequate drainage to enhance the quality of life in the community. Since most drainage-related improvements fall to the individual property owners to address, the Department of Public Works and the Stormwater Utility has implemented a Stormwater Grant to assist.

Fishers accepts applications for its Stormwater Grant, which awards funds to neighborhoods, non-profits, and homeowners within city limits as an incentive to improve local water quality and/or drainage function (see the application and the pictures and descriptions to the right for more program details and project type examples).

Applicants are eligible for up to a 50% match from the City of Fishers subject to the application review and available funding. Applications are accepted year round.  Applicants are required to obtain three (3) contractor quotes for the proposed project at the time of application.  Once approved, the project must be completed and a fully paid receipt showing a zero balance uploaded to the application prior to reimbursement processing.  Join our over 190 applicants since 2018 for your success story today!!
