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.
