Grant Funded Fuels Reduction Opportunites (This Page is Under Construction)
The Mid Klamath Watershed Council applies for fuels reduction grants from private, state, and federal sources. The forestry and controlled burning work funded by these grants makes homes safer during the frequent wildfires we experience in the Mid Klamath.

The Mid Klamath Watershed Council has several programs to help landowners accomplish their fuels reduction work.
FLASH: Fire Adapted Landscapes and Safe Homes.
The program focuses on high wildfire hazard areas in Humboldt County and will reimburse property owners as much as $650 per acre up to a maximum of $3,000. For more details, view the FLASH 2014 information handout or the Public Flyer (PDF) for Orleans.
Humboldt County received National Fire Plan grant funds from the USDA Forest Service through the California Fire Safe Council to support a cost share program designed to assist property owners with the job of reducing their risk to wildfire by thinning flammable vegetation around their homes and along their access routes.
