Community Capacity and Land Stewardship Grant Program Opportunity

The deadline to apply for the National Forest Foundation’s Southeast Alaska Community Capacity and Land Stewardship Grant Program has been extended to April 19, 2013




Through this Community Capacity Land Stewardship (CCLS) grant program, the NFF is administering USDA agency funds to provide capacity building support for local collaborative efforts that work toward achieving watershed restoration objectives within the geographic focus areas. The purpose of this grant program is to provide the tools and support necessary to achieve watershed and landscape scale restoration while also furthering goals that contribute to the economic sustainability of communities. The NFF has partnered with USDA agencies and other partners in the Pacific Northwest to create and implement this innovative capacity building grant program in support of collaboratives and community-based organizations throughout the area.

Through this grant program the National Forest Foundation will administer funds to help collaboratives and community-based organizations address their capacity building needs that further their on-the-ground watershed restoration goals. Grants will be awarded for a one-year period and are available from $5,000 – $24,000.
