Fire Risk Reduction Community List
The Fire Risk Reduction Community List, as mandated by PRC 4290.1, is "a list of local agencies located in a state responsibility area or a very high fire hazard severity zone...that meet best practices for local fire planning." The List is developed and maintained by the Board, with the first iteration beginning July 1, 2022 and updated every two years thereafter.
Details of list eligibility and the application process can be found in 14 CCR 1268.00-1268.04.
For more information on the List and its use, including by the Fire Prevention Grants Program, please see these FAQs. Please send any questions not addressed in the FAQs to LandUsePlanning@bof.ca.gov.
The 2022 iteration of the Fire Risk Reduction Community List is available here for download.

The 2024 application period will be open December 1, 2023 and close April 1, 2024. The Board will not accept applications received after 11:59pm on April 1, 2024.
