Local residents can now apply for grant funding for wildfire protection efforts, thanks to a new grant program enacted by the Summit Board of County Commissioners.

The Community Wildfire Protection Plan Implementation Grant Program involves a competitive process focusing on four areas of protection: life safety, critical infrastructure, design and pre-engineering and education, according to a statement from the Summit County Wildfire Council and CSU Extension Summit County.

The recipient is required to contribute at least 10 percent of the cost of the project to secure the grant.

The application period will run through June 29. Applications are available online at the local CSU Extension page at CSU Extension agent Dan Schroder can be reached at (970) 668-4140 for additional information.
