The Sierra Nevada Conservancy was awarded $20 million in the state’s early action wildfire resilience package with $50 million more proposed in the Governor’s California Comeback Plan. We spoke with five county supervisors, who also sit on our Governing Board, about what this landmark funding means for their communities, the Sierra Nevada, and California.
SNC put out a request for proposals the day the Governor signed the budget bill and received applications for nearly double the $20 million SNC was authorized in just two weeks.
We’re having to make some hard decisions but there is no doubt our region rose to the occasion when the call for projects went out.
The forest health and wildfire challenges that we face today are more than a century in the making, but this move by state policymakers represents a paradigm shift for forest management in the Sierra Nevada.
