Over the weekend, our favorite do-gooders WorldChanging highlighted Santa Monica's goal of reducing water usage by 20% by 2010. To reach this goal, the city is currently offering grants to residents who design their lawns with water-efficient irrigation systems. The grant, paid out after the project is done, covers up to 50% of the cost of your lawn, up to $20,000. Only 17 more days to get your applications in, however.
