The Wildfire Relief & Recovery Fund supports the rebuilding and revitalization of communities throughout our region impacted by wildfire. Tragically, the wildfires have become more and more dangerous, happen more frequently and are incredibly destructive in recent years. More specifically our region has suffered immensely. The impact of these fires has been felt by everyone in our region, and it will take many years of collaborative work for us to rebuild and revitalize homes, health, and wellbeing for all of our neighbors. 

Our goal is to work collaboratively with the nonprofit, government, philanthropic and private sectors to accelerate recovery and rebuilding to create a thriving, resilient and even stronger region. 

Dixie Fire Grant Program

Please read the grant guidelines and criteria before applying – and please note that we will continue to update the program areas and selection criteria as new gaps, issues and opportunities emerge through the long-term recovery and rebuilding process.

Plumas County
Social Safety Net Needs Assessment

The need for a social safety net assessment was identified by the Dixie Fire Funders Roundtable. These funders collectively held concerns about the fragility of the safety net in Plumas County in the wake of the devastation of the Dixie Fire. 

This analysis was made to assist nonprofit organizations open to innovation, adaptive strategies and collaborations to better serve populations most in need.
