More than $7 million will support 31 forest restoration and wildfire mitigation projects across Colorado, the state announced on Monday. Gov. Jared Polis announced the counties that were awarded funds to help with these sorts of projects thanks to the 2023-2024 Forest Restoration and Wildfire Risk Mitigation (FRWRM) grant program grant cycle, which was established by the Colorado legislature in 2017. The grant program is managed by the Colorado State Forest Service. Through the grants, the state assists communities and groups to reduce wildfire risk in their area, while also promoting forest health. Funding from this round of FRWRM grants will go to projects in the following 17 counties: Boulder, Chaffee, Clear Creek, Denver, Douglas, Eagle, El Paso, Garfield, Grand, Huerfano, Jefferson, La Plata, Larimer, Montezuma, Park, Pitkin and Routt.
