Funding for these projects provided by the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection as part of the California Climate Investments Program.
The County Road 306 & Highway 162 Fuel Break 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.
