Firewise Program Overview
 

The Firewise Grant Incentive Program is administered by the Lane County Land Management Division's Long Range Planning and Building programs, with funding provided through Title III of the Federal Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Program - Section 601 of the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008. The grant program offers homeowners in rural Lane County financial assistance to make their homes better able to survive wildfires. To qualify for the Firewise Grant you just need to own a home outside of an urban growth boundary in Lane County that's at risk to wildfire - that's it! (View our eligibility map here.) 
Each of our grant incentives is based on current wildfire research that helps your home greatly reduce the chance of burning during a wildfire. Up to $15,500 in grant funding is available for qualifying properties.
