NFF Matching Grants to Enhance the National Forest System
January 14, 2016
Deadline for applications for MATCHING GRANTS to ENHANCE the NATIONAL FOREST SYSTEM from the NATIONAL FOREST FOUNDATION https://www.nationalforests.org/grant-programs/map. The Foundation’s Matching Awards Program (MAP) provides grants to nonprofit organizations, universities, and Native American tribes throughout the U.S. to engage in on-the-ground conservation and restoration projects that have an immediate, quantifiable impact on the National Forest System. Funded projects must address one of the following focus areas: The Outdoor Experiences category supports results-oriented, on-the-ground projects that improve the quality, condition, and care of outdoor experiences in National Forests. The Forest Health category supports results-oriented, on-the-ground, citizen-involved projects that maintain or restore forest resiliency. All grants require at least a one-to-one cash match through non-federal donations. MAP also requires projects to show a strong commitment to civic engagement and community involvement through the direct involvement of the public.
