The Marin Wildfire Prevention Authority offers two grant opportunities to help residents with expenses related to the creation of defensible space and home hardening.
Defensible Space creates a buffer between a structure and the vegetation that surround it.
Home Hardening addresses the most vulnerable components of a structure with building materials and installation techniques that increase resistance to heat, flames, and embers that accompany wildfires.
For more information on how to harden your home and create defensible space, visit the Fire Safe Marin website.
