Property Owner Assistance

TCFSWG is committed to supporting efforts that result in effective, on-the-ground, reductions of wildfire risk in areas and on properties, most at risk to wildfire. Assistance projects include the removal of hazardous fuels, the creation of defensible space and roadside fuels reduction along evacuation routes. TCFSWG has operated a successful cost-share grant program since the 1990s. The program assists landowners in creating defensible space around homes in the WUI and has also undertaken subdivision-wide protection projects with private landowners.
