Blaine County receives Grant from Idaho Dept. of Lands for Fire Mitigation

Blaine County has received a grant from the Idaho Department of Lands (IDOL) to participate in a Fire Mitigation Project in the Heatherlands and Starweather areas.  Through a Memorandum of Understanding with the IDOL, this project will be funded by monies provided by the IDOL along with the United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service (USDA-FS) as part of the State Fire Assistance (SFA) grant program.

This project is to create fuel breaks for the protection of the Heatherlands and Starweather HOAs and to increase the probability of successful control of wildfire ignitions by conducting hazard fuel treatment work on non-federal lands and educating landowners. 

For more information about this project, please visit and locate “IDOL Grant” under Administrative Services, or call Stacy McLaughlin, Project Manager at 208-720-1738, or email
