Montana West Economic Development partners with MT DNRC on the Forestry Assistance program for Flathead County. The treatment of hazardous fuels is one of the most proactive ways to reduce potential loss of life and property in the event of a wildland fire. By following Firewise™ practices, creating defensible space, and treating fuels, you can lower your fire risk while increasing the chances that fire protection agencies can effectively deal with a wildland fire should it occur. Cost-share funding is available now in some areas to help landowners with the cost of reducing their hazardous fuels. Please complete the form below if you are interested in the program and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
