Obtain Grants To Help Protect Your Community From Wildfires
Each year millions of dollars in grants are awarded to help make communities throughout the nation safer in the event of wildfires.
The Fire Safe Council For Monterey County can help you and your neighbors apply for grants to perform work to help make your community fire safe.
For example, wildfire fuel reduction grants cannot be awarded to individuals and typically must be awarded to non-profit organizations that are tax-exempt under the Internal Revenue Code, such as the Fire Safe Council For Monterey County (FSCMC).
FSCMC can act as a "fiscal sponsor" for a wildfire fuel reduction grant by receiving and administering grant funds for you and your neighbors. This makes it possible for groups that are not incorporated as tax-exempt organizations to apply for and receive grants.
To receive a grant you must apply for it. The grant process is highly competitive and improperly submitted applications are at a competitive disadvantage.
The California Fire Safe Council (CFSC) grant application period for this year closed on April 22, 2016.
Though this year's grant application materials are now outdated, studying this year's grant application materials, such as the CFSC's 2016 Grants Clearinghouse Application Handbook, will help you prepare for when next year's grant application cycle starts. More information on the CFSC's 2016 grant process is available on this CFSC web page.
Fill out the form below and we will let you know when the grant application submittal process starts next year.
Your support today may prevent wildfire tomorrow!
