The Anacostia Waterfront Trust's RainPay program takes advantage of the District of Columbia's stormwater retention credit program to simultaneously provide additional income to DC landowners, particularly those in Wards 7 and 8, while improving water quality and beautifying neighborhoods with green infrastructure like rain gardens. 

RainPay completed its first project in February, 2017. Learn more about how you can make money from planting a rain garden and improving water quality in the Anacostia River: 

Anacostia Park and Community Collaborative

The Anacostia Park and Community Collaborative (APACC) is a project of the Anacostia Waterfront Trust and involves 17 community-based and citywide nonprofit organizations interested in working collectively to catalyze and assist the transformation of the Anacostia River Corridor in the District of Columbia. The principal objective is to help to create a great socially and economically beneficial civic space, on a clean river, adjacent to healthy, green, diverse, and exemplary communities. We want our organizations and the people we serve to be part of that transformation which will most likely take many years to achieve.
