Grants to California nonprofit organizations, agencies, and tribes for projects that reduce the risk of fire on natural lands in eligible regions. Funding is intended for the planning, development, and implementation of projects and activities that will benefit the public through reduced fire risk to communities.

The purpose of these grants is to restore the health and resilience of California forests, grasslands, and natural lands in a manner that reduces fire risk to communities. The Conservancy will fund a wide range of activities to plan, accelerate, and support implementation of land and vegetation management activities to reduce wildfire risk to communities. Projects must provide a public benefit.

Eligible projects will fall into one of the following two categories:

  1. Grants for on-the-ground activities that will reduce the risks of wildland fires. Eligible projects could include:
    • Shaded fuel breaks and other vegetation thinning
    • Dead and diseased tree removal
    • Use of beneficial fire to reduce risk
    • Application of Traditional Ecological Knowledge to reduce fire risks
    • Prescribed grazing
    • Removal of high-fire risk invasive plants and restoration with native plants
    • Equipment to support wildfire reduction work
    • Chipping
    • Other activities identified in fire risk management plans
  2. Grants for capacity-building in the RFFCP Region. These grants could support planning, project prioritization, capacity building, and demonstration projects that will accelerate implementation of wildfire resilience projects. Eligible projects could include:
    • Planning
    • Capacity Building
