LOW INCOME MITIGATION PROGRAM
APRIL 1, 2021
The Low Income Mitigation Program utilizes guidelines developed by the Colorado State Forest Service to create defensible spaces around the home to help you minimize the risk of damage posed by wildfires.
This program is open to property owners in the Aspen Springs, Twin Creek Village, and Pagosa Highlands Estates subdivisions located in Pagosa Springs, CO. Applicants whose household income is below 85% of the Archuleta County median household income are eligible for wildfire mitigation work at no charge to them.
Annual household income must be below $38,766 and the property must be in one of the listed subdivisions in order to be eligible.
Proof of income is required via a copy of previous year’s tax form, etc.

Who We Are
The San Juan Headwaters Forest Health Partnership was established in 2009. Our mission is to provide a forum to share stakeholder perspectives in order to develop science-based collaborative priorities for management and monitoring of forests in the Pagosa Ranger District of the San Juan National Forest in Southwestern Colorado.
All across the nation…
our natural resources underpin economics, recreation, identity, technology, and ecology, to name but a few aspects of our everyday lives. Indeed, the health of our lands is intimately connected to the health of our communities. The inclusive and collaborative management of the forests and watersheds we all all rely upon is essential to improving the health of both the natural and human worlds. The San Juan Headwaters Forest Health Partnership has emerged to meet this need in Southwestern Colorado.
In addition, we add to larger conversations about regional solutions across state and watershed boundaries through our participation in the 2 Watersheds – 3 Rivers – 2 States Cohesive Strategy Partnership (the 2-3-2).
1) To strengthen regional understanding of methods for improving forest health and watershed resilience
2) To broaden knowledge of forest conditions and needs
3) To generate viable management approaches
4) To initiate projects to address identified needs
5) To monitor treatments to guide adaptive management practices
Partnership Members are people and groups representing regional business interests, conservation organizations, local and state governments, federal agencies, recreation interests, ranchers, homeowner associations, scientists, and any interested citizens.
THANK YOU to all our partners, supporters, and funders. The work that we do would not be possible without you all standing behind us!
