About Rain Check

Rain Check is a Philadelphia Water Department program that helps residents manage stormwater at their homes. Participants can either get a free rain barrel or get a downspout planter, rain garden or porous paving installed at a reduced price. There are two different parts of the Rain Check program: rain barrels and cost-share tools. Each part has a different sign up process. Rain Check supports Philadelphia’s Green City, Clean Waters program which is working in neighborhoods across the city, adding green features to keep excess stormwater out of sewers.

The program is funded by the Philadelphia Water Department and managed by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society in partnership with the Sustainable Business Network.
