Launched in 2014, Wildfire Partners is Boulder County’s wildfire mitigation program. Homeowners, with the assistance from Wildfire Partners, work to better protect their homes by actively creating and maintaining defensible space (in addition to home hardening efforts).

This RFP is for forestry contractors to be included on the Wildfire Partners Forestry Contractors List and to be eligible to bid on and complete defensible space projects for eligible homeowners. From 2015 to 2023, Wildfire Partners Forestry Contractors completed over 1,025 defensible space jobs totaling more than $2.7 million.

Over 3,400 homeowners are currently in the program. Wildfire Partners offers motivated homeowners different benefits depending on their location.
