Cash for Grass Rebate is back and better than ever!

The City’s new Cash for Grass Rebate program is designed to help you get rid of that water hogging lawn and replace it with a beautiful new California inspired garden, and it is available to all single-family, multi-family and commercial properties. It is the Santa Monica way!
