Deadline Extended: County Wildfire Coordination Grants
August 27, 2021
The California Fire Safe Council (CFSC) is extending the deadline for the CFSC County Coordinators Grant Application by one month, until Thursday, September 30 at 11:59 p.m. to help accommodate counties currently struggling with the impacts of this season’s wildfires. Even with the extension, the CFSC is making every effort to keep the grant process on track and provide prompt payment. The grant activity period is anticipated to begin November 1.
The objective of the County Coordinators Grant is to educate, encourage, and develop county-wide collaboration among various wildfire mitigation groups operating within counties containing State Responsibility Area (SRA) lands. Up to 24 counties will receive a one-time, 18-month grant of approximately $175,000 to be used to cover administrative costs relevant to county-wide coordination efforts.
Counties must determine interest and act as the starting point to apply for the County Coordinator Grant funding, however, counties may choose to direct the application process and funds to a non-profit or public agency that is best able to execute the project. A letter of support from the county board of supervisors will be required.
