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.

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.
