"Fire‑adapted Landscapes and Safe Homes"

Humboldt County received National Fire Plan grant funds from the USDA Forest Service through the California Fire Safe Council to support a cost share program designed to assist property owners with the job of reducing their risk to wildfire by thinning flammable vegetation around their homes and along their access routes. The program focuses on fivetarget areas in Humboldt County and will reimburse property owners as much as $650 per acre up to a maximum of $3,000.

Is your property at risk to damage from wildfire? Do you want to reduce flammable vegetation near your home or along your access road but can't afford to cover the whole cost yourself? If you live in one of the following areas, we can help you:
