Better Together Resilient Communities Grant Program - PG&E customers

Building local climate resilience
From extreme weather to rising sea levels, the threat that climate change poses to communities across California is becoming all too apparent. In an effort to promote local resilience to climate change, PG&E is investing $1 million over five years through the Better Together Resilient Communities grant program to support local climate resilience initiatives.

Program overview and 2017 focus on wildfires
In 2017, PG&E will award two individual $100,000 grants―$200,000 in total―through a competitive process.

PG&E is requesting grant proposals that will build healthy and resilient forests and watersheds to help communities prevent and prepare for increasing wildfire risk. Eligible projects include research, planning or demonstration projects that better prepare communities for a future with more frequent and extreme wildfires.

The results of the grants will be made publicly available to help communities better understand, plan for and respond to climate change risks and encourage partnership with others.
