Collaborative Forest Restoration Program (CFRP) Workshops Being Held This Week

The USDA Forest Service Southwestern Region will be accepting applications for the Collaborative Forest Restoration Program (CFRP) in 2020 to carry out forest restoration projects on public lands in New Mexico pending federal appropriations.

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 proposals for projects that facilitate landscape-scale, multi-jurisdictional efforts. The deadline to submit proposals is January 13, 2020.

If you are interested in applying and would like to attend a workshop to review the application process, please join us at one of our offices this week.
