Wildfire Grants

Hazardous Fuels Reduction & CWPP Implementation

Hazardous Fuels Reduction Grants Since 2006, the Board of County Commissioners through the Summit County Wildfire Council has provided matching grants to eligible homeowner groups to conduct hazardous fuels reduction projects. In 2008, Summit County voters approved Resolution 1A, which among other things provides funding to support the community based Hazardous Fuels Reduction Grant Program.

The Hazardous Fuels Reduction Grant Program assists property owners with actual costs associated with hazardous fuels reduction efforts in designated areas of concern throughout Summit County.

2011

CWPP Implementation Grants In 2011 the Summit County Wildfire Council recognized that an unfulfilled funding need existed for projects identified in the Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) that did not meet the criteria for the Hazardous Fuels Reduction Grant Program. That recognition has lead to the creation of the CWPP Implementation Grant Program.
