The Community Planning Assistance for Wildfire (CPAW) program is now accepting applications for 2019 assistance. CPAW is an opportunity for eligible communities to apply for free planning services that target the wildland-urban interface (WUI). Services vary, but may include: recommendations for updated planning policies and regulations, capacity-building trainings for planning staff; local wildfire hazard assessment; guidance on local mitigation plans; research and outreach tools.

The application deadline is Oct. 5, 2018. Attached is a website flyer to learn more about the CPAW program and application process. CPAW is funded by the USDA Forest Service and private foundations. The program was founded in 2014 by Headwaters Economics and Wildfire Planning International. More information is also available on the CPAW website: www.planningforwildfire.org
