No, the intent of the program is to support to as many communities as possible with the existing funding. If a community has multiple projects, an application for each project can be submitted independently.
The Office of Emergency Services goal is that projects are completed by November 30th however we also understand that there are many factors outside a Firewise community’s control that could cause delays. If a project deadline is delayed an email update to OES@co.nevada.ca.us is requested within 90 days of funds being awarded. This email should identify why the project has been delayed and offer a revised completion date.
