Angwin Project History
The Angwin Community Wildfire Protection Plan (ACWPP) identifies community hazard reduction projects based on a professional community risk assessment sponsored by Napa Communities Firewise Foundation (NCFF) in 2015. Projects are listed in the ACWPP. Implementation of the identified projects has been based on Angwin Fire Safe Council (AFSC) submitting applications to various grant funding sources to address these projects for the community from 2016-2021.
AFSC successfully obtained grant funding to accomplish fuel-load reduction work for the community as shown on each of these maps for the years 2016-2021.
In 2020, the Napa Community Firewise Foundation prepared a county-wide Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) to help Agencies, Fire Safe Councils, Communities, and local homeowners define, plan and prioritize actions to limit damage from the inevitability of wildland fire. The county-wide CWPP entails the collaboration of local, state, and federal agency representatives, and other interested parties, such as individual property owners, and special interest groups. In addition to the county-wide CWPP, NCFF prepared a Five-Year Plan that prioritizes fuel reduction countywide and recommends types and methods of treatment. This Five-Year Plan was presented to the Napa County Board of Supervisors in April 2021. The Board allocated funding for Year 1 and committed to working with all of the partners to identify funding options for subsequent years.
NCFF will now be applying for mitigation grants for large county mitigation projects as identified in the Five-Year Plan. Individual Fire Safe Councils are expected to raise some funding which can be used for smaller projects and as a match when seeking funding from other sources.
