Funding Opportunities

2023 Statewide Grant Cycle

Application Window Now Open

California-based fire departments, firefighter associations, federally-recognized tribes, and local nonprofit organizations encouraged to apply! In this upcoming cycle, funding priority will be given to those applicants whose climate-driven wildfire and other disaster prevention or preparedness projects serve under-resourced communities at heightened wildfire risk or traditionally vulnerable populations.

Up to $25K available for each eligible project. In response to feedback and the needs of communities, the Foundation is excited to be able to offer larger awards in this cycle. Thanks to the generosity of our major funding partners, we anticipate funding impactful projects with extended reach -- projects that actively protect and enhance the public’s safety and the safety of California’s fire service first responders via:

  • Vegetation Mitigation & Fuels Reduction Efforts
  • Education, Planning and/or Community Outreach Campaigns
  • Personal Protective Equipment or Specialized Equipment Purchases
