DOBBINS, Calif. September 12, 2019 – The Yuba Watershed Protection & Fire Safe Council is hosting an informational meeting. A representative from USDA-Rural Development will discuss their grant and/or low-interest loan programs. Both are designed to help residents pay for home fire- safe upgrades and to improve their defensible space.

Dr. Kate Wilkin, with UC Extension and an active member of our Fire Safe Council, will share information on the most important fire resistant upgrades for your home and treatments for your property, and what is eligible for this grant/loan program.

Topics include:

  • Grant and/or low-interest loan programs to help residents pay for home fire-safe upgrades and to improve their defensible space.
  • Information on the most important fire-resistant upgrades for your home and treatments for your property, and what is eligible for this grant/loan program.
  • New Fire Safe Council Defensible Space Advisor Program. Volunteers will be trained and available to review your property. A grant has also been secured that will pay for hazard and risk assessments that are part of creating a Firewise USA Community.

Everyone is invited to attend. Any questions contact Kate Wilkin at (530) 822-7515 or kwilkin@ucanr.edu.

The Dobbins-Oregon House Improvement Foundation will be selling hot dogs, snacks, and drinks prior to the meeting.

We look forward to seeing you there!
