Forest Legacy Program Funding Available

Apr 5th, 2017 | By | Category: News

The Nevada Division of Forestry (NDF) is pleased to announce that proposals are now being accepted for Forest Legacy Program (FLP) competitive grant funding. FLP is a voluntary program that assists private landowners with protecting working forests from conversion to non-forest uses through the creation of conservation easements and the direct acquisition of property. Forestlands that contain important scenic, cultural, recreation, and water resource(s), as well as fish and wildlife habitat, and other ecological values that will support continued traditional forest uses are considered priority projects. Local governments, land trust organizations, and other nonprofit conservation organizations may apply for FLP funds on behalf of interested private landowners. Nevada may request up to $10 million in FLP funding for a total of three proposed legacy projects.

Those interested in submitting a FLP proposal can view eligibility requirements and application instructions at:

Please contact NDF Legacy Program Coordinator, Heather Giger, with any questions about the FLP program or proposal process. Consultation with NDF staff prior to submitting an application is highly recommended to ensure that your proposal meets state and federal FLP eligibility requirements.
