Community Wildfire Mitigation Grant application open for resident and HOA projects

February 21, 2024 at 3:44 pm

Wildfire mitigation is one of City Council's strategic goals and priorities. To help mitigate wildfire risk and protect the community, the City developed a grant program to provide financial resources for residents and homeowners associations to conduct wildfire mitigation projects.

How much funding is available for a project?
Homeowner associations and individual residents can apply for wildfire mitigation funding. The City will accept funding requests for up to $5,000 from an HOA and up to $250 from a resident. All funding requests require a minimum match of 50% from all applicants. If a resident has a wildfire mitigation project expected to cost $500 or more, they would be eligible to ask for the full $250 of City funds.

When are applications due?
Applications will remain open until March 29, 2024. If your project is selected, funds will be reimbursed after completion of the project. A final report, before and after pictures, and proof of payment or receipt(s) must be submitted to receive reimbursement.

What type of projects are eligible? 

  • Projects should focus on open space and vegetation mitigation
  • You can replace plants or trees susceptible to wildfire, remove vegetation encroaching on residential structures, or complete other projects to reduce fire hazards around your home.
  • Any planted plants must be of a species on the approved Wildfire Resistant Plant List.
