The purpose of the Community Wildfire Defense Grant is to assist at-risk local communities and Indian Tribes with planning and mitigating against the risk created by wildfire. Priorities are at-risk communities in an area identified as having high or very high wildfire hazard potential, are low-income, and/or have been impacted by a severe disaster. More details on these three priorities can be found in the Notices of Funding Opportunity (NOFOs). There are two primary project types for which the grant provides funding: (1) The development and revision of Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPP); (2) The implementation of projects described in a CWPP that is less than ten years old.
