Wildfire Adapted Community
This program offers neighborhoods that are new to our Wildfire Adapted Partnerships program to receive up to $7,500 for a community project which partners are available to help plan if requested; however, the Neighborhood Ambassador is responsible for writing the scope of work and getting contractor bids. Most neighborhoods use the funding to mitigate common space or create shaded fuel breaks along their road rights-of-way. All projects will be inspected by Wildfire Adapted Partnership and Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) upon completion. Residents must provide at least a 25% cash match.
Upon completion of the project, the Neighborhood Ambassador is required to make a short presentation at a Wildfire Adapted Fire Council meeting to discuss their project and lessons learned and provide before and after pictures.
