The Sonoma County Vegetation Management Grant Program provides resources and grant funding for vegetation management in areas at high-risk of wildfire.  Since the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors created this program in 2021, it has funded 65 different projects across the county, and has supported the work of local and regional fire districts, local Firewise and Community Wildfire Prevention Plan projects, Resource Conservation Districts, homeowner associations, nonprofit organizations, Tribes, and resource managers.

Funded projects include implementing shaded fuel breaks, increasing grazing and calming zones, the use of prescribed fire and the development of educational and technical tools – all of which are designed to slow or prevent the spread of wildfire in our community.
