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 apply.

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!!
