Joint Chief’s Landscape Restoration Partnership
Eligible applicants include private landowners, tribal and local government agencies working in coordination with the National Forest System and/or State Lands.
The U.S. Forest Service (FS) and USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) are working together to improve the health of forests where public and private lands meet. Through the Joint Chiefs’ Landscape Restoration Partnership, the two agencies are reducing and mitigating wildfire threats to communities and landowners, protecting water quality and supply for communities and industry, and improving wildlife habitat for at-risk or ecosystem surrogate species.
Applications are currently being accepted for the 2021 funding cycle. Proposed projects require the approval of both local and regional FS and NRCS representatives, and must include activities on a combination of private and public lands.
