San Andreas, CA — Calaveras County is seeking ideas on how to best spend $114,940 coming via Title III funds from the federal Secure Rural Schools and Community Self Determination Act.

The county government reports that proposals are due by November 10 at 3 pm. Under Title III rules, the projects can only be related to certain areas:

-Firewise Communities Program

-Reimbursement for emergency services (firefighting and law enforcement patrols) on federal land paid for by the county.

-Develop community wildfire protection plans (CWPPs)

-Training costs and equipment purchases related to emergency service.

-Title III has been expanded to include (A) broadband telecommunications services at local schools; or (B) the technology and connectivity necessary for students to use a digital learning tool at or outside of a local school campus.

There will then be a 45-day public comment period, from November 28 – January 23 to review the proposals and a decision will come afterward by the board of supervisors.

Proposals should be sent to Calaveras County Administration at 891 Mountain Ranch Road, San Andreas, CA 95249 or via email at
