The Colorado “WildFire Mitigation Measures Subtraction” at TAX TIME!
In 2014 a limited amount of local funding will be available for
reimbursement of defensible space treatment. These funds will be
applied only in special considerations of financial need. Contact us to
More funding opportunities are being pursued. Firewise Communities
should work together with local agencies to procure grants and complete
their Firewise Assessment recommendations. We have a lot to do but we
are off to an incredible start!
When considered as a home improvement, wildfire mitigation expenses are
a modest investment that leverages substantial long term benefits.
This isn’t easy work, but it is very important. Keep it up!!
