2021 Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) Assistance Grant

In January of 2021, the Oregon Legislature Emergency Board granted approximately two million dollars to the Oregon Office of State Fire Marshal for distribution to the Oregon Fire Service. This funding is available to the Oregon Fire Service as a grant. The objective of the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) Assistance Grant program is to improve the capacity and capability of fire protection districts and fire departments across Oregon. These jurisdictions protect Oregon communities and play a pivotal role in the prevention and suppression of wildland fires in the WUI. The WUI assistance grant is administered as a pass through award. The grant is intended for fire agencies with priority for those impacted by the 2020 fire season along with underrepresented and under-served communities. Although all Oregon fire jurisdictions are eligible to receive funding.
