Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPPs) are developed for counties, sub-county areas, and local communities under the statutory guidance and incentives of the Healthy Forests Restoration Act of 2003 (PL 108-148), as well as other Oregon and federal laws. Several federal assistance programs for wildfire risk reduction and mitigation require CWPPs as a prerequisite for funding. CWPPs are collaborative efforts of local, state and federal agencies, along with groups representing diverse community knowledge and interests. They normally include a summary of the planning process, a community profile, a wildfire risk assessment, emergency management information, a mitigation action plan, and a plan for monitoring and evaluation.
