2018 Chipper Rebate Program

This program encourages the chipping of slash from reducing flammable vegetation conducted on any privately-owned property in La Plata, San Juan, Montezuma, Archuleta or Dolores counties in Colorado. FireWise will reimburse the homeowner $150/day or 50% of the cost, whichever is less. You may choose to rent a chipper yourself or hire a mitigation company to provide chipping services, assuming all requirements are met. You may fill out an application electronically or print a paper application.   

This program is valid for chipping conducted April 1, 2018 through October 31, 2018 for as long as funds remain available in 2018. Early submission is advised.
