Registration Open for Webinars on Community Wildfire Defense Grants
On July 26, 2022, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack launched a new $1 billion Community Wildfire Defense Grant (CWDG) program. This new, five-year, competitive program funded by President Biden’s historic Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is designed to assist at-risk communities, including Tribal communities, non-profit organizations, state forestry agencies and Alaska Native corporations with planning for and mitigating wildfire risks.
There will be a series of webinars August 4th, 8th and 9th to provide potential applicants with an overview of the grant program.
