  • Intended to address wildfire risk to homes dealing with surrounding fuels in the home
    ignition zone (first 30’.)
  • This is not a grant award but a DOLLAR-FOR-DOLLAR MATCH up to $500 per household.
    Cannot reimburse residents for work already completed.
  • Not intended to “landscape” or maintain your property – has to follow mitigation
    standards. Funding will be for hazardous fuels removal, not stump grinding, vegetation
    replacement or mulch replacement.
  • No money to exchange hands; City and residents will be invoiced directly from the
    contractor.
  • Must use a tree service licensed / insured with the City of Colorado Springs.
  • Walk-thru with CSFD, resident and contractor is required prior to work being done –all
    work discussed will be noted on work form and signed off by the owner and the
    contractor. Homeowner will receive an estimate for the work beforehand.
  • Each participant must sign a stewardship agreement.
  • Limited funds – First come, first served. Additional sign-ups will be on the “stand-by” list
    in case not all funds are used up.
