KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — Klamath County Public Health (KCPH) has opened opportunities to fund the replacement of inefficient woodstoves in Klamath County.

“We want homeowners – including rental property owners – to know that this opportunity will close a week from Friday on May 24,” said Jennifer Little, director of KCPH. “At this point we’ve seen two applications from Chiloquin and four from Klamath Falls.”

In Klamath Falls KCPH is seeking proposals from homeowners to change-out woodstoves for non-wood burning heat sources. Meanwhile in Chiloquin, KCPH is seeking proposals from homeowners to change out woodstoves for certified low emission woodstove heat sources.

Grant application materials are available at http://www.klamathcounty.org/998/Woodstove-grant-program. Applications must be received at KCPH by 4 p.m. Friday, May 24. They may be emailed to KCPH@klamathcounty.org or faxed to 541-885-3638.

Applications may also be delivered by mail or in person to 3314 Vandenberg Road, Klamath Falls OR 97603.

In Klamath Falls, these grant funds must be used for the purchase of a non-wood burning heat source, permits, contractor for installation, and removal and decommissioning of existing wood burning device only.

In Chiloquin, these grant funds must be used for the purchase of a low emission woodstove or non-wood burning heat source, permits, contractor for installation, and removal and decommissioning of existing wood burning device only.

Quotes for all services must be included with application.

The award amount is not-to-exceed $5,000 per dwelling. One award per homeowner is authorized. Homeowners are eligible to apply for owner-occupied or rental dwellings with existing woodstoves.

Grantees must submit receipts at the end of the grant period to demonstrate that funding was used for purchase and installation of an appropriate device, depending upon the city of the residence, and removal of a woodstove.

Receipts are due Thursday, August 1, 2019. Preference will be given to applications for dwellings located within a designated area in each city. These areas are described in the grant materials. However, those preference areas did not return enough valid applications in a previous funding opportunity to dispense all of the funding available. All interested residents of Klamath Falls and Chiloquin are urged to apply.
