Assistance with Post-Fire Recovery Efforts

The YCRCD is partnerning with regional RCDs, the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and USDA Farm Services Agency (FSA) to better serve our communities in their post-fire recovery efforts. We may not be able to assist with home or structure damage, but we will do our best to provide you with the information and resources you need to address post-fire vegetation and erosion issues and help assist with returning damaged watersheds back to normal function. Some situations may be beyond the technical capability of our team. If that is the case, we will get you in touch with a list of specialists.

Some of these services we offer include:

  • Site Visits and Conservation Plans – RCD staff, in partnership with NRCS, can come to your property and advise you on best practices moving forward to ensure healthy soil, habitat restoration and erosion control during post-wildfire recovery.
  • Connecting with the right program – NRCS and other federal and state partners have programs designed to assist rural landowner and agriculture operations with addressing erosion and other issues after natural disasters like wildfire. Some of these programs offer financial assistance or cost-share opportunities in rebuilding infrastructure like fences, irrigation systems and livestock water stations. We can assist by evaluating your needs and connecting you with the right program to fit those needs. .
