  • Implementation of community programs that develop and enhance local capability in the areas of risk assessment and planning, training, mitigation activities, and community and homeowner education and action;
  • Planning and implementation of fuels management reduction activities aimed at mitigating the threat of catastrophic wildlife to communities and natural resources in high risk areas, including associated monitoring or maintenance, on federal land and/or on adjacent non-federal land;
  • Enhancement of local and small business employment opportunities for rural communities; and providing education and training focused on increasing knowledge and fire protection capability of rural fire districts.

Projects that include a cost-share or in-kind contribution will have priority for selection.
