Valley Wate
r is now accepting applications for their 2021 grants through Dec 1, 2020. This year, Valley Water has more than $900,000 available in grant funding for projects and activities that meet the minimum qualifications and eligibility criteria for volunteer creek cleanups & education, access to trails and open space, wildlife habitat restoration and water conservation. This grant funding is part of the Safe, Clean Water and Natural Flood Protection Program, which was approved by 74 percent of voters in 2012 to allow Valley Water to reinvest into the community for meaningful projects. For more information about the grant award process, eligibility criteria, minimum qualifications and how to apply, visit valleywater.org/grants or contact grants@valleywater.org.

If you were affected by wildfires this year a new moratorium issued by State Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara prevents your insurance company from cancelling your policy for the next year. Check to see if you live in a zip code that is covered by the moratorium here. Commissioner Lara is also holding a live-streamed workshop on December 10th. This meeting will include fire and home hardening experts as well as wildfire catastrophe modeling experts. They will discuss potential administrative and regulatory changes which could help enhance existing standards and models that are based in fire science to protect lives and property. More information and a link to register can be found here.
