This week, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) announced it will direct nearly $138 million in funding for 105 local fire prevention projects to help protect communities across California from wildfires. The fire prevention grants enable local organizations such as fire safe councils to implement activities that address the risk of wildfire and reduce wildfire potential for communities. Funded activities include fuel reduction, wildfire planning, and fire prevention education.
