The Strategic Wildfire Prevention Initiative is a suite of funding programs administered by UBCM and managed through the Strategic Wildfire Prevention Working Group. Since 2004, the initiative has supported communities to mitigate risk from wildfire in the wildland urban interface.

The Strategic Wildfire Prevention Initiative has transitioned to the Community Resiliency Investment (CRI) Program.
