Low-Income Seniors Can Get Help With Hazardous Trees

Low-Income Seniors Can Get Help With Hazardous Trees

Local low-income seniors can get help removing hazardous trees that threaten their homes, thanks to a fund set up by Amador County District 3 Supervisor Lynn Morgan. She created the fund with the Amador Community Foundation recently and kicked it off with an initial $10,000 personal donation. The fund will make grants to low-income Amador County residents aged 62 and older. The grants are only for felling or otherwise removing trees that are a threat to homes and will range from $500 - $1,000. If you are in need of such a grant, you will need to get a cost estimate from a tree removal expert and include that with your application. Applications will be available starting tomorrow and continuing through April. Morgan is also hoping that businesses, civic organizations and individuals will help build on her initial donation and make the fund grow by making their own donations.
