The State Fire Assistance grant program (also known as the Western Wildland Urban Interface Grant Program) focuses on hazard fuels reduction, information and education, and community wildfire protection planning. Fire departments, local governments, educational institutions, and non-profit organizations qualify.
The project proposal period for the 2017 grant cycle ended July 29, 2016 and is now closed.
(Guidance and forms for the 2018 grant cycle are expected to be available in spring/summer 2017)
New for 2017! - Arizona State Forestry will use this proposal process to identify project partners for collaborative grant applications - which will then compete with applications from other states across the western United States. The expectation is for project proposals from multiple local partners to be combined into comprehensive applications for specific geographic areas of the state. See the Request for Projects document for more specifics and a map of potential focus areas.
