In honor of National Wildfire Community Preparedness Day, on May 7, individuals and groups have until February 28 to apply for a $500 grant to cover expenses related to minimizing threats and damage due to wildfires. 

Winners are set to be chosen March 3 and will be based on State Farm’s assessment of the project as well as a public vote.
