Community Resiliency Investment

Applications are not currently being accepted for this program. 

The Community Resiliency Investment (CRI) program was announced by the provincial government in 2018 and is intended to reduce the risk of wildfires and mitigate their impacts on BC communities. 

CRI includes two streams:  FireSmart Community Funding & Supports, administered by UBCM, and Crown Land Wildfire Risk Reduction, administered by the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations & Rural Development.

For all funded projects, it is expected that in-person activities, meetings or events meet social distancing and other public health guidance in relation to COVID-19.  Extensions to project end dates and final report deadlines are available for any approved project impacted by COVID-19.
