CAL FIRE County Coordinator Grant Program

The objective of the CAL FIRE County Coordinator Grant Program is to educate, encourage, and develop county-wide collaboration and coordination among various wildfire mitigation groups. The program provides counties with $175,000 to hire a County Coordinator, whose roles are to:

  • Build a census of all active wildfire mitigation groups in their county.
  • Analyze gaps in county-wide wildfire resiliency and emergency preparedness and develop recommendations to fill these gaps.
  • Develop mechanisms to improve outreach and coordination efforts.

Since 2021, CFSC has funded 52 out of 58 counties in California to hire and/or place a County Coordinator in pursuit of county-wide wildfire practitioner collaboration. Click the map below to find your county’s Coordinator.

The County Coordinator Program is part of California Climate Investments, a statewide program that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing GHG emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment – particularly in disadvantaged communities. The Cap-and-Trade program also creates a financial incentive for industries to invest in clean technologies and develop innovative ways to reduce pollution. California Climate Investments projects include affordable housing, renewable energy, public transportation, zero-emissions vehicles, environmental restoration, more sustainable agriculture, recycling, and much more. At least 35 percent of these investments are located within and benefiting residents of disadvantaged communities, low-income communities, and low-income households across California.
