From our partners at the US Forest Service:
The Call for Proposals for the Retained Receipts program is out.
Project proposals for this round of retained receipts will be limited to National Forest System Lands, or adjacent lands with a clear nexus that will improve habitat on National Forest System Lands within the same watershed (e.g. stream restoration where the stream flows through multiple ownership jurisdictions).
The overarching purpose of the stewardship contracting authority, including the use of retained receipts, is to improve watershed conditions while meeting local and rural community needs. Priority projects for the Retained Receipts Funding Program are those that clearly restore, maintain, and/or enhance habitat, ecological function, water quality, soil productivity, forest health, and/or watershed condition.
