Protect Your Home From Fire, Apply to the Agoura Hills Home Hardening Grant Program

Updated: Jun 1

The city of Agoura Hills is offering a one-time $1,000 grant to incentivize home owners to participate in the Resource Conservation District of the Santa Monica Mountains (RCD) Home Ignition Zone Evaluation Program (HIZEP). Before applying to receive a grant, homeowners must first complete the HIZEP. Once awarded a grant, those funds must then be used to address issues that came up in the evaluation. The program will run for as long as there are available funds, and it is on a first come, first served basis, so don't delay and apply today!
