Collaborative Wildfire Risk Reduction Program (CWRRP)

Eligible states include 13 states in the South, Midwest and East. The money will be allocated through an internal competitive process, so it's up to local Forest Service units to put forward projects.
24 Qualifying States: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, Washington, and Wyoming.
