Project Description:

To provide analysis and educational outreach to agency and policymaker staff on the importance of prioritizing resilience and mitigation in wildfire planning and budgeting during a critical period of the wildfire debate. With the passage of significant new federal spending for wildfire and forest management, federal agencies and Congress are now tasked with deciding how this money will be spent. TCS will use their well-respected and trusted voice to inform and engage with the U.S. Forest Service on their wildfire crisis strategy; conduct rapid response analysis and educational outreach on congressional wildfire proposals and spending debates; and distribute their educational analysis to target audiences, including policymakers, the press, and national and local advocacy groups.
