Severe wildfires in Ventura and Los Angeles Counties have damaged urban and rural roads, culverts, structures, and hill slopes, resulting in potential discharges of sediment, metals, nutrients, and other pollutants to adjacent
streams, threatening aquatic life and public health.

The Program will allocate a total of $320,000 worth of reimbursable supplies across at least 16 sub-projects, funding will be available on a first come first serve basis.
