NCO Seeking Subject Matter Experts for Lake County Home Hardening Initiative

North Coast Opportunities, Inc (NCO) invites qualified Subject Matter Experts (SME) to join the California Wildfire Mitigation Program (CWMP) Home Hardening Initiative. NCO seeks qualified companies and individuals to provide historical, cultural, and biological resource services as described in NCO’s SME Request for Proposals, Phase II. More information and a detailed Scope of Work are available at  

NCO is currently working with the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) to pilot the Lake County Home Hardening Initiative, which will be funded in part by a FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant. The Home Hardening Initiative aims to perform defensible space and retrofit measures on existing residential homesites to mitigate against wildfire loss. The program will target one area within Lake County, the Kelseyville Riviera Community Association.

The infusion of federal funds into the program requires compliance with federal and state environmental regulations, including NEPA, CEQA, and Section 106. As such, NCO seeks the professional services of qualified Subject Matter Experts to inform the possible environmental impacts of this program in the proposed project areas, including biological, archaeological, architectural, and historical research services.
