OSFM Community Wildfire Risk Reduction Grant Application Period is Now Open

News Image
The Oregon State Fire Marshal announced the opening of its Community Wildfire Risk Reduction Grant earlier this week. According to OSFM, this funding is designed to enhance wildfire defensible space across the state while supporting wildfire mitigation projects led by structural fire protection agencies, counties and cities. The $3 million grant will significantly reduce wildfire risk by funding projects to create and maintain defensible space around buildings and critical infrastructure. Individual grant awards will range between $50,000 and $75,000. The grant focuses on two project types: Defensive Space Projects -- where the goal is to protect the first 100 feet around buildings, constituting about 70% of grant funds -- and Community Protection Projects that extend beyond 100 feet to create fire breaks or lessen wildfire risks community-wide. Applications will be prioritized based on fire risk, social vulnerability and project clarity. Oregon State Fire Marshal Mariana Ruiz-Temple said this grant works in concert with their other wildfire programs to move us closer the goal of keeping fires small and away from communities. More information -- including the application and a grant manual -- can be found on the OSFM's grants webpage at "oregon.gov/osfm." ...Read more
