Individuals, businesses, groups and other organizations are encouraged to collaborate on the design, implementation, and monitoring of projects that value local and traditional knowledge, promote healthy and productive forests and watersheds, and build ownership and civic pride.

CFRP encourages communication and joint problem solving through interagency, cross-jurisdictional, and inter-tribal projects.

By working together, small business owners, conservation and environmental organizations, community groups, tribes, colleges, universities and other organizations can qualify for CFRP grants for forest restoration projects that reduce the threat of wildfire, improve watershed conditions, and provide jobs and training to local communities.

Applicants are encouraged to submit applications for projects that facilitate landscape-scale, multi-jurisdictional efforts.

Implementation applications must include a signed NEPA decision document for the proposed treatment site.

The Forest Service anticipates awarding 10 to 15 CFRP grants totaling $3 to $4 million in 2013, pursuant to federal appropriations.

Individual awards range from $120,000 to $360,00 0. The CFRP Technical Advisory Panel, a Chartered Federal Advisory Committee, will evaluate CFRP grant applications and provide recommendations to the Forest Service on which ones best meet the program objectives.

The Secretary of Agriculture will make the final decision on project funding.

Awarded projects are expected to be funded and commence activities by the fall of 201 3.
