Landscape Scale Restoration Grants
Eligible applicants include other State and local agencies, tribes, non-profit organizations and educational institutions. NDF seeks Landscape Scale Restoration (LSR) projects that address local or statewide forest and rangeland resource issues, along with goals and strategies in Nevada’s Forestry Action Plan (FAP). Projects must address significant issues, landscapes of concern, and focus on conserving working forests and rangelands, protecting forests and rangelands from harm, and/or enhancing public benefits from trees, forests and rangelands. Eligible projects are in areas with a population of 50,000 or less (new Congressional criteria as of 2020).
Innovative projects are sought that integrate various programs (e.g., Forest Health, Forest Stewardship, etc.) and partners across any combination of ownership, management or jurisdictional boundaries. Cross-boundary projects are encouraged as they expand project outcomes at watershed, regional and state levels.
Reviewing Past Applications
Reviewing past successful applications will help with the preparation of competitive projects and pre-proposals. The applications below provide good examples of content and format that clearly describe the project, address the scoring criteria and explain how funding will be used. Additional successful LSR applications may be viewed on the Western States LSR website. In general the Western Forestry Leadership Coalition website is a great resource for grants in the Western U.S.
Review instructions and scoring criteria at the Western States LSR website. The 2022 funding announcement has not yet been released, but the process will be very similar to previous years (please note that you apply this year to be funded next year for the LSR program).
