  • The effects of wildfire in California (Caldor, Dixie, and KNP Complex Fires) and Washington State (Cedar Creek and Muckamuck Fires) may persist for years as vegetation regrows and landscapes recover.
  • Funding will be used to address the needs of land and emergency management agencies at the Federal, Tribal, State, and local levels by providing new information to identify information gaps, support recovery planning, and aid in recovery and rebuilding decisions.
  • Funding will also be used to focus on data and information for vegetation recovery for resource management, debris-flow hazard assessments in priority high-risk areas for recovery and emergency planning, and water flow and quality modeling water-supply protection.
