What do I need to submit for the rebate?

This depends upon whether this is your first or second rebate for this property. 

If this is your first rebate for this property, the process has changed temporarily due to COVID-19 restrictions. Please see below for options  

  • If you have already completed a Health Department workshop in the past three years, you may submit your rebate application with a copy of your invoice.  If it has been longer than three years, remember to complete the refresher quiz before submitting your application.
  • If you have not completed a workshop, you may:
    1. Wait until the in-person workshops resume and submit your application after you have completed the training.  Rebate applications can be received for 12 months after the work on your septic system has been completed.  Grant funds will still be available for rebates after in-person workshops resume.
    2. Complete the Health Department’s online training and submit your application with the attached quiz and invoice now.  

Please email us at PICprogram@co.whatcom.wa.us with any questions about these changes

You will need to submit:

  • Rebate application form.
  • Copy of the receipt or paid invoice for the work completed.

If this is your second rebate for this property, you will be required to complete a refresher quiz to receive the rebate. You will need to submit:

  • Rebate application form.
  • Copy of the receipt or paid invoice for the work completed.
  • Copy of your completed refresher quiz
