Obtain Grants To Help Protect Your Community From 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 has closed its grant application period for the 2017-18 grant cycle.
The deadline for submitting grant applications was May 12, 2017, 5:00 p.m., Pacific Daylight Standard Time.
However, you can download the Instructions for filing out and submitting a grant application, including a link to download a copy of the 2017 Grant Application Handbook, a grant application PowerPoint, a video of a grant application training webinar, and more, on this pagehttp://www.cafiresafecouncil.org/2017-grant-program
Though those grant application materials are obsolete, you can use them to prepare to apply next year. The grant application period is short and the learning curve to properly fill out a grant application is not. You can give yourself a competitive advantage next year by looking over this year's grant application materials before the next grant application period begins.
Each year millions of dollars in grants are awarded to help make communities throughout the nation safer in the event of wildfires.
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!
