The Senior Firewood Program provides qualified seniors a limited amount of pine/fir to supplement their other home heating sources when wood is available. Also accepts donations of wood as able.

PLEASE NOTE: Anyone wanting to apply to receive wood or donate wood should call to learn the current status of the program. Wood supplies generally run out each season and there are not always enough volunteers to accept wood donations. Call 530-615-4541 to learn when applications open and whether donations are currently being accepted.

At times when the Senior Firewood Program is out of wood, Project Go may be able to help both Nevada & Placer County residents if they are income eligible for LIHEAP (they do not need to be seniors, just income qualified). Call 916-782-3443.

Seniors may qualify for the Senior Firewood Program if they meet the following criteria:
  • A Nevada County resident living in the Greater Grass Valley area
  • 60 years of age or older
  • Income eligible (provided by GCSS)
  • Lives alone or with another age-eligible, low income senior
The Gold Country Senior Services Senior Firewood Program usually begins accepting applications for the next winter season in July.

How to apply:Applicants will be notified in writing of the status of their application.
