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. Use grant application materials linked to on the California Fire Safe Council's website to inform yourself on how to properly submit a grant application.
If you have questions about submitting a grant application to the California Fire Safe Council they should be directed to one of the grant specialists for the California Fire Safe Council, with contact information on this page www.cafiresafecouncil.org/contact-a-grant-specialist/.
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.
