In 2020, the SBCFSC was awarded a $196,000 grant from CalFire to create a CWPP for the Gaviota Coast. A CWPP is a strategic plan to guide wildfire mitigation in a certain region. This provides an opportunity for local community members to get involved and work together to identify and prioritize projects that will increase the preparedness of the communities in the assessment area for wildfire. Having a CWPP also opens doors to grant opportunities to complete those wildfire projects. The CWPP team has been working hard over the past 2 years and the document was officially approved by the County Board of Supervisors, in January 2023.
