Does your community have a mitigation project in mind that could use grant funding?
The Colorado State Forest Service has issued its annual Forest Restoration and Wildfire Risk Mitigation grant opportunity. This year Wildfire Adapted Partnership will submit a proposal for community projects, act as fiscal agent, and take care of the grant reporting needs.
If your community is interested in pursuing this opportunity, please consider submitting a proposal! The projects require 1:1 match, which can be a combination of cash or in-kind (volunteer hours). These can also be multiple year projects. If awarded, all projects will start after June 1, 2020 and must be completed by June 1, 2023.
Additional information can be found on the CSFS website
. If interested, please let me know by early next week.
Feel free to send me an email or give me a call if you would like to discuss further. We encourage you to share this information with any other communities that may be interested, as well.
