Wildfire Prevention Direct Assistance Request Form

Thanks to Measure C, we are able to expand out partnership with  AmeriCorps St. Louis to directly help low-income, elderly, and disabled homeowners reduce the wildfire risk around their home as well as other wildfire mitigation work. This partnership will help create a more resilient and fire-safe San Rafael. We anticipate that this free need-based service to qualified homeowners will occur between mid June and mid-August of 2020.

Please note that although we will strive to help all residents who need it, we cannot guarantee assistance for everyone under this program. Our partner teams from AmeriCorps also may be required to respond to a major emergency elsewhere.

After a successful partnership during the Summer and Fall of 2019, we are excited to welcome teams back to San Rafael for the Summer of 2020.
