2013-2014 Wildfire Risk Reduction Grant Program

The New Mexico Association of Counties has opened the application process for the 2013-2014 Wildlife Risk Reduction Grant Program. DEADLINE: March 1, 2013

The New Mexico Association of Counties (NMAC) is pleased to release the 2013-2014 Wildfire Risk Reduction for Rural Communities Grant Program.  Applications can be submitted electronically or via mail.


Funding for this program is provided by the National Fire Plan through the Department of the Interior/Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in cooperation with NMAC.  The program targets at-risk communities by offering seed money to help defray the costs of reducing wildland fire risk to non-federal WUI areas in New Mexico.  Funding is intended to directly benefit communities that may be impacted by wildland fire initiating from or spreading to BLM public land.

 

The 2013-2014 Wildfire Risk Reduction Grant Program grant cycle will give priority to applicants who request funding for outreach and education projects (i.e. Fire Adaptive Communities, Ready, Set, Go Program) that encourage reducing wildfire risk on non-federal lands and can show a direct benefit to BLM lands.  Requirements for New Mexico State Forestry CWPP updates are included with the program information. A limited number of hazardous fuel reduction projects will also be considered.

 

All applications must be received by the New Mexico Association of Counties office by 5:00 pm on March 1, 2013 and can be submitted electronically to jesparsen@nmcounties.org.
