News Release
REMINDER: Community Wildfire Risk Reduction Grant Closes on January 31, 2023 - 01/23/23

The $18 million grant fund, Community Wildfire Risk Reduction Grant, offered by the Oregon State Fire Marshal closes to applications on January 31, 2023. The Community Wildfire Risk Reduction Grant Program is open to local governments, including special districts, structural fire service agencies, and non-governmental organizations. Eligible applicants can apply for wildfire risk reduction projects, equipment, and staff to support local efforts. The funds will enable local organizations to create and/or support existing programs that reduce wildfire risk. 

The application period is open until January 31, 2023. To learn more about the Community Wildfire Risk Reduction Grant and to apply, visit www.oregon.gov/osp/programs/sfm/Pages/OSFM-Grants.aspx

Applications must be received no later than 5 pm on January 31, 2023. All the related grant documents can be found on OSFM's grants website. https://www.oregon.gov/osp/programs/sfm/Pages/OSFM-Grants.aspx

OSFM hosted two informational grant clinics, and potential applicants did not need to attend the clinics to be eligible to apply. Both webinars were recorded and can be watched here: https://www.oregon.gov/osp/programs/sfm/Pages/OSFM-Grants.aspx

This is an exciting opportunity for OSFM to offer. The state legislature allocated this funding through Senate Bill 762 to support communities in reducing their wildfire risk. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to our Office.
