Rare Grant Opportunity for Landowners to Create Fire Resilient Landscape

September 30, 2019by ncdea

WASHINGTON, Cascadia CD – Cascadia Conservation District, Lake Wenatchee Fire and Rescue and Washington’s Department of Natural Resources are leading the 100 Acres Healthy Woods Challenge program to serve as an incentive for landowners to conduct fuels reduction work such as thinning small trees, limbing up large trees and reducing brush.

“This is a really special grant opportunity that probably won’t come around again,” said Patrick Haggerty, Cascadia’s forestry program manager.

To appeal to landowners to create more fire resilient landscaping, the 100 Acre Healthy Woods Challenge offers cost-share reimbursements to landowners. A group of five or more adjacent landowners that agree to thin a total of 20-50 acres will be eligible for a 75% cost-share reimbursement for the cost of the contractor completing work. An individual landowner is eligible for 50% of cost-share reimbursement for 20 acres or less and if a group of adjacent landowners corralled to sign up and covered a total of 100 acres, they could be eligible for up to 100% of funding.
