CAL FIRE Awarded CARCD a 4 Million Dollar Wildfire Resilience Block Grant

Increasing Pace and Scale: Taking Critical RCD Projects to Implementation 

Responding to the statewide unprecedented wildfire events, California’s resource conservation districts work with communities to complete critical fire resilience and reduction work to decrease the severity and impacts of wildfire

The California Association of Resource Conservation Districts (CARCD) announced the recent award of grants to 10 resource conservation districts (RCDs) located throughout California to fund forest fuel reduction and fire readiness projects. RCDs will use the grants to complete technical assistance to landowners to develop forest management plans, burn plans, and Fire Risk Evaluations, along with the creation and implementation of other fuel reduction projects.

The RCD recipients of the grant are: Butte County RCD, Contra Costa RCD, Humboldt County RCD, Mariposa RCD, RCD of Greater San Diego County, San Mateo RCD, RCD of Santa Cruz County, Sierra RCD, Upper Salinas‐Las Tablas RCD, and Western Shasta RCD. Recipients include those RCDs who helped develop the block grant with CARCD.

Funding was made possible through a 4 million dollar Wildfire Resilience block grant awarded to CARCD by CAL FIRE.
