Grants available for fuels-reduction projects in Nevada

The Nevada Division of Forestry is seeking applications for the State Fire Assistance grant program.

About $1 million from the National Fire Plan will be allocated to projects statewide, according to a press release. The purpose of the funding is to mitigate risk of wildfires in wildland-urban interface areas.

Funds can be used for costs associated with implementing on-the-ground hazardous fuels reduction projects, information and education relating to Wildland Urban Interface issues and homeowner and community action projects. Projects must be implemented on state and/or private lands located in Nevada. Projects on federal lands are not eligible.

For information or an application, visit http://www.forestry.nv.gov.

Applications must be received by the Nevada Division of Forestry no later than 5 p.m. Aug. 23. Late, incomplete, faxed or electronic applications will not be accepted. For more information, contact Kacey KC at 775-684-2511.
