External Funding Opportunities
The Office of Recovery and Resiliency is tracking, investigating and coordinating other grant opportunities for recovery-related priorities. In addition to FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant Fund, we are working with federal and state funders to identify and apply for recovery related grants. A comprehensive list of recovery-related external funding opportunities will be available by July 30, 2019.
CAL FIRE Grants for Fire Prevention
The CAL FIRE Fire Prevention grant program, funded by the California Climate Investments (CCI) fund, aims to reduce the risk of wildland fires to habitable structures and communities, while maximizing carbon sequestration in healthy wildland habitat and minimizing the uncontrolled release of emissions by wildfires. CAL FIRE anticipates applications will be due December 19. The Office of Recovery is tracking this opportunity and coordinating with applicable County Departments and partners to begin considering applications.
The County has received one grant through the CAL FIRE Fire Prevention grant program:
- Northwest Roadway Safety, Fuels Reduction, and Community Chipper and Engagement Project (Transportation and Public Works is the lead, in partnership with Fire and Emergency Services and Fire Safe Sonoma)

Match source: $131,300 is from General Fund FY 2018 set aside; $23,272 from in-kind volunteer labor tracked by Fire Safe Sonoma
