Home » CalFire Grant


During fiscal year 21-22, the Habitat Authority was awarded a  $617,862 one-time grant from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) Fire Prevention Grants Program to fund activities which would reduce the wildfire fuel load in the Puente Hills Preserve.

The proposed project would fund efforts such as vegetation clearing along the urban-wildland interface, dead tree removal (well over 100 trees) and goat grazing (approximately 36 acres).  It will compliment historic efforts, as well as match efforts funded in part by the Rivers and Mountains Conservancy via the Governor’s statewide wildfire prevention package. The overall project on the ground work will be completed in 2024.
