The Coastal Conservancy is pleased to announce its Wildfire Resilience Program Request for Proposals to support local partners to develop and implement projects that improve ecological health of natural lands and reduce the risk of catastrophic fire.
Donor Name: Coastal Conservancy
County: Marin County (CA), Contra Costa County (CA), San Benito County (CA), Ventura County (CA)
Type of Grant: Grant
Deadline (mm/dd/yyyy): 01/14/2022
The purpose of these grants is to restore the health and resilience of California forests, grasslands, and natural lands in a manner that reduces fire risk to communities. The Conservancy will fund a wide range of activities to plan, accelerate, and support implementation of land and vegetation management activities to reduce wildfire risk to communities. Grants will not fund home hardening. Projects must provide a public benefit.
The program will fund grants for:
- on-the-ground activities to restore the health and increase resilience of California forests, grasslands, and natural lands to wildfire; and
- planning and capacity building to increase wildfire resilience in California for projects from Marin County south to Ventura County.
There are no maximum or minimum grant amounts for this funding. Conservancy funding from this program comes from three separate sources with different priorities and geographies. The Conservancy has a total of $10 million for wildfire resilience implementation projects, $5 million of which is for the nine-county SF Bay Area.
