The Wildfire Risk Reduction (WRR) and Wildfire Response (WR): WRR and WR grants has been announced that are broader than Cross-Boundary Mitigation grants and don’t require benefit to a National Forest.

The U.S. Forest Service supports Moving Toward Shared Stewardship Across Landscapes as part of a conceptual framework for making strategic investments across landscapes to co-manage wildfire risk and achieve positive outcomes at the most appropriate scale. Within this framework, Eastern Region Cohesive Fire Strategy Competitive Request for Applications is designed to support and carry out the goals of the National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy (NCS) across the Midwestern and Northeastern States as well as meet the intent of the current year budget direction.
All grants support the National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy goals:
Restore and Maintain Landscapes: Landscapes across all jurisdictions are resilient to fire-related disturbances in accordance with management objectives.
Create Fire Adapted Communities: Human populations and infrastructure can withstand a wildfire without loss of life and property.
Improve Wildfire Response: All jurisdictions participate in making and implementing safe, effective, efficient risk-based wildfire management decisions.
