Wildfire Prevention Planning Funds Available

Funding is available for local governments and First Nations to prepare Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPPs) and CWPP Updates under the 2015 Strategic Wildfire Prevention Initiative.

The initiative is a suite of funding programs, administered by UBCM and managed through the Provincial Fuel Management Working Group, that support B.C. communities to mitigate risk from wildfire in the wildland urban interface.

As of July 2014, funding has been fully allocated for fuel management prescriptions, demonstration and operational treatment projects. Applications are not being accepted for these program streams until further notice.

The 2015 CWPP Program & Application Guide and Application Form are now available on the UBCM website.
