15. Funding Opportunity- California Fire Safe Council Competitive Grants: Due Date June 18, 2020

California Fire Safe Council (CFSC) is pleased to announce its competitive application process for 2020 State Fire Assistance (SFA) wildfire prevention grants. Funding is provided through a master grant to CFSC by the U.S. Forest Service to administer the Grants Clearinghouse program, with CFSC issuing subawards to successful applicants to support fire risk reduction activities by landowners in at‐risk communities to restore and maintain resilient landscapes and create fire adapted communities. Funds should be utilized for hazard mitigation competitive grants in the following categories:

Hazardous fuels reduction and maintenance projects on non‐federal land
Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPP) and other community hazard mitigation and planning
Prevention and mitigation education and outreach opportunities for landowners and residents in at‐risk communities
Funding, Cost Share Requirement and Duration:

CFSC has approximately $1.4 million available for 2020 SFA wildfire prevention projects.

The mandatory cost share is 100%. Federal funding can account for up to 50% of the project’s cost and the remaining 50% must come from non‐federal sources and can include cash and/or third‐party in‐kind. For example, a $200,000 grant request will need to be matched with $200,000 or more from the applicant and partners.

    3. Funding Opportunity- Informational Webinars & FAQs for the FY 2022 Coping with Drought Competitions
    Since 2007, the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) has funded more than 60 innovative drought research projects through the Coping with Drought research competition. Research through the Coping with Drought competition assesses impacts of drought on agriculture, ecosystems, and water resources and develops decision support tools for regional, state, and local use. This research contributes to the understanding of how communities become aware of drought threats and how they can improve preparation and planning. The projects incorporate consultation with stakeholders, and focus on information that is most useful for decision-making to reduce vulnerability; models and tools that bring this information to decision makers; and strategies for improving NIDIS’ engagement with communities in preparedness.

    This competition will focus on research to improve our understanding, early warning, and management of drought risk in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems to inform more deliberate and expanded decision-making that supports sustainable, healthy, and resilient ecosystems.

    Plans may include, but are not limited to, drought contingency plans; drought, water, or natural resource plans; agricultural resource management plans; or climate adaptation plans.

    Pending the availability of funds in FY 2022, NIDIS anticipates a funding allocation of approximately $1.5 million. Proposals may request funding of up to $500,000 to be expended over two years in the form of Cooperative Agreements. A total of 6–7 projects may be funded.
