Now Accepting Applications for 2018
Are you ready to make your community safer? We are now accepting applications from eligible communities to participate in CPAW in 2018. Applications are due September 29, 2017 and must be submitted jointly by the community planning and fire departments.
As one of the first pilot communities in the CPAW program, Taos County is receiving highly detailed risk maps and land use planning advice to reduce wildfire risks. The CPAW team is working closely with the County Planning Department, Carson National Forest, and local community leaders to identify the best strategies for implementing the maps and land use planning tools on-the- ground.
