2022 SFA Grant Award Announcement

California Fire Safe Council (CFSC) is pleased to announce 8 projects have been selected for funding for the 2022 State Fire Assistance Grant Program.  

CFSC approved $1,175,000 in federal grant funds to support wildfire risk reduction projects in at-risk communities in 8 counties across California. 

The selected projects help California communities respond to the growing concern over a catastrophic wildfire and exemplify efforts to create fire-adapted communities. Through subgrants from CFSC, these projects provide support to implement fuel reduction projects such as community chipper programs, fuel breaks, and roadside and defensible space projects. These projects will also utilize educational tools to spread the Fire Safe message and engage community members. 

Funding for the 2022 Grants Clearinghouse is provided through master grants to CFSC by the Cooperative Fire Program of the U.S. Forest Service (USFS), Department of Agriculture, Pacific Southwest Region. These State Fire Assistance grants support: 

  • Hazardous fuels reduction and maintenance projects on non-federal land 
  • Community Wildfire Protection Plans and other plans or assessments 
  • Prevention and mitigation education and outreach opportunities.
