Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) grant funds to mitigate risk from wildland fire are available and awarded through a competitive process with an emphasis on hazard fuel reduction in the WUI, information and education, assessment and planning, and monitoring through community and landowner action. The primary purpose of the WUI Grants Review Team Meeting is to prepare scorers and mentees to score applications. This will include reviewing the scoring aid, reviewing/scoring past grants with in-person mentoring opportunities, overview and demonstration of the online portal functions, etc. The meeting will also provide a forum for participating states and islands to address WUI grant related issues and share successes and challenges which will help to more effectively deliver the grant program across the West. The meeting will also provide an opportunity to identify and address other WUI issues that are occurring in the western states and Pacific Islands.
