The Glacier View Fire District is pleased to announce that the Larimer County Office of Emergency Management has opened their 2023 Community Mitigation Grant Program.

Full information on this grant can be found at the following website https://www.larimer.gov/emergency/community-mitigation-grant-program. Note that applications are due by March 5, 2023.
