The Glenn County Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) was developed as a means of describing current fire related conditions within Glenn County, identifying public and private assets at risk from wildfire, and assessing currently in-place infrastructure developed in order to protect those assets.
The development of the CWPP relied on vast information, talents and knowledge provided by landowners, land managers, city representatives and multiple local agencies.
Funding for the original CWPP was made possible through the California Fire Safe Council Grants Clearinghouse from the Bureau of Land Management.
Through a grant funded by the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) California Climate Investments Fire Prevention Grants Program, the Glenn County RCD will be updating the CWPP in 2020/2021.
If you have input in regards to the CWPP update, please take our survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GG529DR

The Glenn County Community Wildfire Protection Plan Update for Community Protection Project is part of California Climate Investments, a statewide program that puts billions of Cap-And-Trade Dollars to work reducing GHG emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment-particularly in disadvantaged communities. The Cap-and-Trade program also creates a financial incentive for industries to invest in clean technologies and develop innovative ways to reduce pollution. California Climate Investments projects include affordable housing, renewable energy, public transportation, zero-emission vehicles, environmental restoration, more sustainable agriculture, recycling, and much more. At least 35 percent of these investments are located within and benefiting residents of disadvantaged communities, low-income communities, and low-income households across California.
