To prepare at-risk communities to be more adaptive to wildfire under Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
USDA Forest Service, in cooperation with the States, is delivering the Community Wildfire Defense Grant (CWDG) Program as part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. Title VIII of IIJA outlines the CWDG Program. The Agency is tasked with designing and implementing this Program that will award grants to at-risk communities, including Indian Tribes. According to 2 CFR Part 200 and Forest Service Handbook 1590.11, Chapter 20, there is certain narrative and budget information required for the Agency to determine if the project meets the legislative requirements and if the costs are reasonable, allocable, allowable, and necessary for the project. Emergency approval for a new ICR is required so that the Notice of Funding Opportunity Project Narrative Form can used by grant applicants to provide information that will determine which grants are awarded for the first round of funding.
