Discretionary Fund Rebate Program

The Stillaguamish Discretionary Fund rebate program helps landowners, community groups, and non-profit organizations carry out water quality improvement projects in the former Stillaguamish Clean Water District. The voluntary, non-regulatory program is administered by Snohomish County Surface Water Management (SWM) and offers funding for small projects on private or public property that will provide shellfish protection benefits in Port Susan or South Skagit Bay.

​Eligible Projects

To be eligible for a Discretionary Fund rebate, your proposed project must be designed to improve the quality of surface water or groundwater within the former Stillaguamish Clean Water District. An example project is shown below.
