FEMA released the draft of the “Fire Management Assistance Grant Program and Policy Guide” for a 45-day public comment period from June 16 to July 31. Comments received during the public comment period will be reviewed and considered for the final version of the guide.
Fire Management Assistance is available to state, local, tribal and territorial governments for the mitigation, management and control of fires on publicly or privately-owned forests or grasslands which threaten destruction that would constitute a major disaster. The draft guide and accompanying comments matrix are available on the FEMA website. Submit the completed comment matrix by e-mail to FEMA-FMAGfirstname.lastname@example.org.
