- National Mitigation Hero Award
- Wildfire Mitigation Legacy Award
- Fuels management and fire behavior
- Changing fire environment
- Emissions and air quality
- Fire effects and post-fire recovery
- Relative impacts of prescribed fire versus wildfire
- Human dimensions of fire
The primary announcement FA-FOA0020-002 has one task statement:
- Performance of fuel breaks and fuel break systems
- Great Basin
- Pacific Islands
