So far, the AFAR program hs spent slightly more than $1 million to help treat more than 1,200 acres of land in Southern Oregon.

From the Mail-Tribune:

AFAR is about to embark on the second year of this three-year project with about $2 million in potential grant money in hopes of doubling the lands treated in the Ashland watershed to curb catastrophic wildfire danger here.

Erin Kurtz, NRCS’s district conservationist, says she hopes the successes of the first round of grants will help other landowners in the AFAR range, stretching from Emigrant Lake to Wagner Gap, take part in the program.
