Summit County Wildfire Council Grants
Hazardous Fuels Reduction and CWPP Implementation 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 Wildfire Council Grant Program. 

Hazardous Fuels Reduction Grants
The Hazardous Fuels Reduction (HFR) Grant Program is a community-based cost share program.  In order to apply for an HFR grant, a community representative works with local wildfire mitigation experts to develop a fuels reduction plan that fits the needs of the local community.   

CWPP Implementation Grants
The CWPP program provides assistance with projects identified in the Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) that do not meet the criteria for the Hazardous Fuels Reduction Grant Program, such as development of emergency water supplies, improvements to evacuation routes and hazard tree removal.

For more information on the Hazardous Fuels Reduction or CWPP Implementation Grant programs, call (970)668-4140.

 Protect Your Home from Wildfire with Help from the Summit County Chipping Program
Summit County Government and Summit County Wildfire Council are helping residents and property owners create defensible space by providing free chipping and disposal for branches, logs and small trees.  If you clear woody vegetation from around your home and stack it in a slash pile, we'll chip it and haul it away for free.
