Building Fire Resiliency in California’s Coast Range Forests and Grasslands
The “Building Fire Resiliency in California’s Coast Range Forests and Grasslands” Project is a collaboration of partners, funders, and forest and range landowners working to implement land management practices that will minimize wildfire impacts on human life and property by providing financial and technical assistance to private landowners.
About the Grant

Projects are awarded through the Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP).
