Cooperative Forestry & Fire Grants

NDF provides opportunities for partnering organizations and landowners to access funding resources to implement urban and rural natural resources conservation, protection and enhancement needs as identified in Nevada's Forest, Range and Watershed Action Plan. Nevada Division of Forestry receives funds for our programs from the State of Nevada, the U.S. Forest Service, State and Private Forestry (S&PF) branch as well as from other private and non-profit organizations. NDF works to ensure that all funds are invested in locally supported projects that address issues of national, state and local importance and provide meaningful, lasting and measurable outcomes.
