Members of FAC Net receive various amounts of staff support, access to our online collaboration space, small funding opportunities, and opportunities to participate in virtual and in-person co-learning exchanges or trainings.

Affiliate Membership is for ANY community wildfire resilience practitioner who wants to learn from and actively connect with other practitioners.

Core Membership is currently by invite only and requires a high level of commitment. Each core member has a FAC Net workplan, and agrees to devote significant time each year to engaging with staff and other members in a variety of ways. Members are dedicated to learning, sharing and innovating to advance and promote the practice of community wildfire resilience. In addition, core members iteratively determine the areas of emphasis for FAC Net.
FAC Net also supports core members who convene state networks. Due to the large number of communities in the United States that need to work on fire adaptation, FAC Net supports state networks to increase its capacity and reach as many fire-prone communities as possible. When communities across a state work together on fire adaptation they can leverage state-specific funding sources and agency partnerships.
