Community Forest Program Funding AvailableNov 30th, 2016 | By DCNR Administrator | Category: News
Nevada Division of Forestry is pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the Community Forest and Open Space Program (CFP) competitive grant funding. CFP provides funding for the acquisition of private forest lands for public use. Community forests and open spaces are important to people and the places they call home. Community forests provide many benefits such as places to recreate and enjoy nature; they protect habitat, water quality and other environmental benefits. Community Forests have also long been sites for environmental and cultural education.
Tribal and local governments, land trust organizations, and other qualified nonprofit conservation organizations may apply for CFP funds on behalf of interested private landowners. In 2017, Nevada may submit up to three proposed projects for national funding consideration. Each individual project may not exceed $400,000. Pre-proposals are due January 13, 2017.
