The Wildfire Business Transition Program Self-Directed Training is a two-step application process. 

Application 1 is the Eligible Business and Training Plan Application.  This is submitted to the review committee to ensure that your organization and training plan meet the eligibility criteria for the funding.

If your Eligible Business and Training Plan Application is approved, you will be contacted with links to the Owner/Manager Training application and the Employee Training Application.


The Eligible Business and Training Plan Application is automatically submitted to Community Futures on-line when you click on the “Submit” button.  A copy of your application will be in a pop-up window on your computer, where you can right click on it and print a copy for your records.  It is possible that the pop-up feature is blocked on your computer or the document will pop-up behind already opened windows.  If you don’t see the document immediately, minimize the other windows and it should be there.  If you are unable to print a copy, email and a copy of your application will be forwarded to you.
