Thelma Hansen Fund Call for Proposals: Update

Due to the sale of the Faulkner Farm and associated expenses for the planned transition of the Hansen Agricultural Research and Extension Center to a new location, there will be no call for proposals for the Thelma Hansen Fund in 2021.

Post Fire Recovery Project

Severe wildfires in Ventura and Los Angeles Counties have damaged urban and rural roads, culverts, structures, and hill slopes, resulting in potential discharges of sediment, metals, nutrients, and other pollutants to adjacent
streams, threatening aquatic life and public health.


A new project - in partnership with Ventura RCD and Los Angeles Regional Water Board - will implement erosion control Best Management Practices (BMPs) to reduce erosion on private and public lands impacted by
2018, (INCLUDING THE THOMAS FIRE), 2019, and 2020 wildfires within Ventura County.


The Program will allocate a total of $320,000 worth of reimbursable supplies across at least 16 sub-projects, funding will be available on a first come first serve basis.
