Healthy Forests Reserve Program

California Healthy Forests Reserve Progam (HFRP) - 2013

Program Introduction

The Healthy Forests Reserve Program (HFRP) is offered to provide financial and technical assistance to eligible participants who want to voluntarily protect, restore, or enhance threatened and endangered species habitat on forest properties they own or manage. California's HFRP focuses on habitat restoration and enhancement projects that have the potential to benefit listed anadromous fish and other at-risk wildlife. Priority lands for enrollment in 2013 include forested habitats protected by conservation easements and those lands within North Central Coast California (NCCC) Recovery Domain.

Program Ranking and Evaluation

The California HFRP provides cost-share funds for specific conservation practices that restore or enhance threatened and endangered fish and wildlife habitat. Applications will be screened and ranked statewide in a single pool using factors that address program objectives and environmental benefits toward improving habitat for listed and at-risk species. The approved practice list for this initiative is available for viewing below. Applications that provide the greatest environmental benefit will be ranked highest and awarded funding through a local evaluation process. Applications that are unable to be funded through this fiscal year's program will be deferred to the next funding cycle.
