On March 15-16, 2022, the Aspen Institute Energy & Environment Program, The Nature Conservancy, and Council of Western State Foresters convened a virtual workshop — the third in a series on U.S. wildfire resilience.  Following the passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA, P.L. 117-58) and its unprecedented levels of funding for wildfire resilience work, this convening brought together state, tribal, federal, NGO, and other experts to deepen their shared understanding of the funding available so that they can prepare to access this funding and implement wildfire resilience activities.  This summary captures some of the key topics of discussion.
