We Are Eligible! $2000 Powerlink Fire Safety Grants, Community Meeting

Many Lawson Valley homeowners are eligible for SDG&E Powerlink Fire Mitigation Grants of up to $2000. But the timeline is very short: applications are due in two weeks, 17 August 2012.

Grant money can be used to fire-harden your home and/or create defensible space. It can also be used for certain purchases like electric generators or sprinkler systems.

You'll find more information and online grant applications at To  request an application packet by mail, call the Powerlink Grants Office at 619-722-7512. 

An informational meeting will be held this coming Tuesday, 7 August, at the Deerhorn Fire Station, 2383 Honey Springs Road, at 7:00 p.m. Please bring a chair, as seating will be limited.

  1. Even if your parcel is marked "INELIGIBLE" come to the Meeting on Tuesday! 2007 Fire Victims were excluded from notification because they didn't have a "habitable structure" on their parcel in 2008, when Powerlink was approved. DUH! They had burned to the ground in October 2007. Pretty nigh onto impossible to have dealt with finding a place to live, FEMA, insurance settlements, permits, bids, construction... all in a YEAR! SDG&E made the rules... they should be able to change them and not restrict fire victims. These are yearly grants for the life of the Powerlink. APPLY!
