GRANT AWARDS ANNOUNCEMENT:
What is the Grants Clearinghouse?
One-stop shop that simplifies the process of finding and applying for grants to improve California's community wildfire preparedness.
Who is the Clearinghouse?
The Grants Clearinghouse is a program of the California Fire Safe Council (CFSC). It is an online grants application process that makes it easier to find and apply for wildfire prevention grants to support community projects.
Through grants to the California Fire Safe Council, some federal agency members of the California Fire Alliance originally spearheaded the development of the Grants Clearinghouse to help achieve the goals of the National Fire Plan by facilitating an open, collaborative process for grant funding. The Grants Clearinghouse expands the playing field to more organizations by making it easier to find and apply for grants. It increases collaboration among agencies by sharing information and facilitating planning across agency boundaries which will demonstrate to Congress, California's needs and accomplishments.
CFSC's Clearinghouse enhances existing relationships between communities and federal agencies, and helps create new relationships by expanding funding opportunities for eligible organizations and agencies alike. TEST
Your organization submits an application to the CFSC Clearinghouse. Applications are reviewed by an independent Review Committee and, if selected for funding, will be paired with the most appropriate source of funds. Eligible unfunded applications are placed on a hold list. The California Fire Safe Council monitors the hold list should additional funding become available throughout the year. All applicants are encouraged to apply in order to help demonstrate greater need throughout the state.
How to get started
Setting up an account with the Grants Clearinghouse is easy! Simply click on the link to Register as a New User and choose a User Name and Password. You will be asked to enter information about your organization (sorry- we don't give grants to individuals) and contact information. We highly recommend creating one account per organization as accounts cannot be combined.
Grant funding through this site is from California Fire Alliance member agencies.
