Coalitions & Collaboratives, Inc. (COCO) is excited to announce the Spring 2021 Action, Implementation and Mitigation (AIM) grant recipients. Eight organizations from five states were awarded $378,793.20 to build and develop their mitigation capacity.
AIM grants are now distributed over 14 states, with the addition of a new Utah awardee, Woodland Hills Fire Department.
The grant funding will increase local capacity by: funding a Tribal crew to create defensible space on low income properties, expanding a firewise program to an additional county, training fire personnel to utilize a wildfire risk assessment program, hiring new mitigation personnel to address a backlog of home assessments, and supporting existing personnel to increase partnerships and local relationships.
The AIM Program is co-sponsored by the USDA Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters.
