Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPP)

The 2003 Healthy Forest Restoration Act (HFRA) directs communities at risk of wildfire to develop a risk assessment and mitigation plan. Community Wildfire Protection Plans are a collaborative effort between wildfire suppression agencies, federal, state and local governments, community groups, and individuals.
