Please create defensible space on your property as soon as possible this year!
Summit County Wildfire Mitigation grant pre-applications are due a month earlier this year, on March 27, 2021.
These grants are usually awarded to groups of property owners working collectively so that the money awarded will achieve a more effective fuel break. Please refer to this web site for details and contact Dan Schroder if you have any questions: https://www.summitcountyco.gov/908/Wildfire-Mitigation-Grants
If you’re applying as an individual homeowner, an option to consider is the Summit Association of Realtor’s Defensible Space Grant: https://summitrealtors.org/main/wildfire-prevention-in-summit-county/
Another option as an individual applicant would be to ask your local tree removal expert if they are willing to submit a grant application including individual homeowners who can be added into a collaborative group.Posted by Bosgraaf Homes on
