This program is only applicable to the New Mexico Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) as defined in an approved Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP). A completed and approved CWPP is a pre-requisite for funding. Program funding is intended to directly benefit communities that may be impacted by wildland fire initiating from or spreading to BLM public land. Projects need to show a direct benefit to BLM. Applicants may apply for complimentary projects, but no more than one per category. Each project must be submitted on a separate application. Applications are reviewed by a selection committee and the NMAC Board of Directors vote on award recipients.
