Grants of up to $20,000 and grants of up to $24,999 to New Mexico counties, municipalities, tribes, and pueblos representing rural communities to improve capacity to mitigate and respond to wildfires. Funding is intended to purchase equipment, and to support organizational and prevention projects.
Grant funding focuses primarily on wildland fire objectives including: 1) equipping rural fire departments with wildland fire equipment; 2) organizing rural fire departments for wildland fire response; and 3) wildland fire prevention. Structural firefighting objectives are a lower priority, but EMNRD may consider them if benefit from these projects will carry over into wildland objectives.
EMNRD will place a strong emphasis on wildland personal protective equipment (PPE) and firefighting equipment (FFE). EMNRD will give higher priority to projects that enhance local governmental entities’ capabilities to safely respond to and manage wildland fires in medium/high risk areas (as identified in the New Mexico Forest Action Plan) through the response of their rural/volunteer fire departments, focusing on the wildland objectives described above. EMNRD may also give consideration to structural fire objectives showcasing a regional benefit, though this will be given a lower priority.
The primary focus of VFA funding is to strengthen a local government's ability to organize and respond to wildland fire. Examples include:
