    Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program (CFLRP) All-Hands Web Meeting

    Sponsored by USFS Forest Management, Range Management, and Vegetation Ecology in partnership with the National Forest Foundation

    You're invited to join an upcoming webinar!

    Objectives

    As we move into the final year of the 2009 CFLRP authorization, this web meeting is intended to provide an opportunity for the CFLRP community to come together, to hear and discuss program updates from various perspectives, to engage in dialogue as we reflect back on what we've learned, and to look forward to the future. To those ends, this web meeting will:

    • Promote dialogue between those in the USDA Forest Service who work with CFLRPs both locally and nationally and local partners in CFLRPs.
    • Exchange important information between partners and the agency.
    • Gather initial reflections on lessons learned through the CFLRP and implications for collaborative restoration moving forward.
    Suggested Audience
    CFLRP project participants, including collaborators and Forest Service employees

    Speakers
    • This web meeting will feature a panel of partners engaged in CFLRPs from across the nation and presentations from:
    • John Crockett, Acting Director, Forest Management, Rangeland Management & Vegetation Ecology, USFS;
    • Lindsay Buchanan, Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program Coordinator, USFS;
    • Dylan Kruse, Director of Government Affairs & Program Strategy, Sustainable Northwest;
    • Courtney Schultz, Associate Professor of Forest and Natural Resource Policy, Director of the Public Lands Policy Group, Department of Forest and Rangeland Stewardship, Colorado State University; and
    • Will Butler, Associate Professor, Florida State University, Department of Urban and Regional Planning.

        Please note that this session begins at 2:00 PM Eastern. This session is being recorded and will be available on National Forest Foundation's website.

        MATCHING AWARDS PROGRAM WEBINAR

        2019 Request for Proposals Informational Webinar

        The National Forest Foundation (NFF) will host an informational webinar on the Matching Awards Program on Wednesday, January 9, 2019 from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm MST to provide an overview and answer questions. 

        Sign up today!


        Background 

        The NFF is currently soliciting proposals for its Matching Awards Program (MAP), a grant program that provides federal funds for direct on-the-ground projects benefiting America’s National Forests and Grasslands. By pairing federal funds provided through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Forest Service with non-federal dollars raised by award recipients, MAP measurably multiplies the resources available to implement stewardship projects that benefit the National Forest System.

        A common thread connecting NFF program areas is an interest in results-oriented projects that enhance the viability of natural resources while benefiting and directly engaging surrounding communities. The NFF accepts applications from non-governmental, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations and Native American tribes working on or adjacent to National Forests and Grasslands throughout the United States[1]. Through MAP, organizations completing on-the-ground conservation work can apply for matching funds up to twice a year, although only one MAP award may be active at any time. MAP funding is available to support specific conservation and restoration projects and is not appropriate for programmatic support. Please note this distinction.

        MAP project selection occurs twice each year through single-stage proposal rounds. In each round, the NFF evaluates submitted proposals and provides funding to a subset. The process from proposal submission to notification of funding generally takes about two months.

        All MAP awards require a 1:1 nonfederal cash match, and a project's secured and anticipated funding should be clearly identified in the proposal's Financial Plan. In-kind contributions and federal funds are not eligible to serve as match. Please document these additional contributions to show project leverage. Award recipients cannot provide MAP award funds to the U.S. Forest Service or any other federal entity.

        This webinar will review the MAP purpose and goals, submission requirements, recent changes to the matching process, best practices, and provide an opportunity for Q&A.
