Several forestry and fire grants are now open for submission of project proposals. The grants help reduce wildfire risks in the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI), support county wildfire protection planning and improve forest health. They are administered through Idaho Department of Lands (IDL) and fall under three categories: Hazard Fuel Reduction, Western States Fire Managers, and Landscape Scale Restoration.
Those eligible to apply include: state, county and local agencies; non-profit (501c3) organizations; tribes; and educational institutions. A limited number of project proposals for each program will be selected for full development and submission for a competitive process for the western United States.
IDL is offering a webinar to help with the application process.
