Now Accepting Applications

September, 2019. The Community Planning Assistance for Wildfire (CPAW) program is accepting applications through October 18, 2019.

CPAW works with communities to reduce wildfire risk through improved land use planning. Selected communities receive free, customized technical consulting services and training over the course of one year from CPAW’s team of professional land use planners, foresters, risk analysts, and researchers. Specific services may include detailed land use planning recommendations, hazard assessments, custom research, and training. Read more about what we do and the communities we’ve worked with to date.

CPAW assistance is voluntary and provided at the request of the local government. Local jurisdictions retain sole authority for implementation of land use planning recommendations provided through CPAW. CPAW services are provided at no cost to the community.
