The Philadelphia Water Department, the PA Horticultural Society and Sustainable Business Network are looking for qualified contractors to work with the Rain Check Program.
Through Rain Check, Philadelphia Water provides free rain barrels and helps residents pay for landscaping tools that manage stormwater and can beautify their properties.
They need qualified contractors to install stormwater tools such as rain gardens, permeable pavers, downspout planters and rain barrels.
Installation contractors may be landscapers, hardscapers, general home contractors, and professionals from related fields.
Benefits include: free or reduced-cost training, affiliation with our innovative Green City, Clean Waters Program, paid consultations, and new customer leads without the cost of advertising.
Rain Check work is not intended to be full time, and pairs well with an existing workload.
Depending on participant demand, active contractors can expect to earn $10,000-$35,000 per year. Work will begin in July for qualified contractors.
To be considered for Rain Check, any interested contractors should join them for a February 12 information session to learn more about the program and meet current contractors.
The session will be held at the PA Horticultural Society Board Room, 100 N. 20th Street 5th Floor in Philadelphia. Click Here to RSVP.For more information, Visit Here for the formal announcement.
