The following information is from State Farm.

State Farm is committed to helping communities prepare for and reduce their risk of wildfire damage. That is why for the sixth year in a row, State Farm is sponsoring National Wildfire Community Preparedness Day with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) on May 4, 2019.

State Farm will provide funding for 150 projects in the amount of $500 each to cover expenses related to individual grassroots efforts. Activities can be coordinated by anyone (individuals, a small group, an entire neighborhood or a community-based organization) working to reduce wildfire risk, advance general wildfire preparedness, or minimize post-fire impacts from a recent wildfire. Applications are now open for the grants.

Deadline – March 1.
