Announcement New Opportunity: Proposition 84 Wildfire Resiliency and Recovery Planning Grants

Published:

The California Strategic Growth Council (SGC), the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research (OPR), and the California Department of Conservation (DOC)are pleased to open the application period for Proposition 84 Wildfire Resiliency and Recovery Planning Grants. A total of approximately $720,000 is available for up to 3-5 grants between $150,000 and $250,000.

Proposition 84, passed in 2006, directed funds to protect natural resources vital to public health, California's economy, and the environment. In all, SGC awarded over $66 million through Prop 84 between 2010 and 2018.

Some of the Proposition 84 awards went unused by grantees that completed or refined their proposed projects. In response to community need, the California Strategic Growth Council voted to dedicate these unused funds to a round of grants to help California communities affected by wildfire with recovery and adaptation planning. SGC, OPR, and DOC seek to invest in innovative planning approaches that can serve as models to help jurisdictions throughout California become more resilient in the face of wildfire.

The application deadline is March 18, 2020. Staff will host a webinar for prospective applications on February 24, 2020.
