BOISE, March 30, 2021 – The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA)Forest Service (FS) and Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) are requesting proposals for funding under Joint Chiefs Landscape Restoration Program (JCLRP) beginning in fiscal year (FY) 2022. The intent of the partnership is to achieve measurable outcomes through coordinated conservation activities on public and private lands. Selected projects will enhance collaboration among FS and NRCS, as well as many local, non-governmental, Tribal, and individual landowner stakeholders. JCLRP will align with Shared Stewardship by selecting projects that demonstrate a cross-boundary effort, work at the appropriate scale, and have mutually defined priorities that lead to desired outcomes. The objectives of JCLRP are to:

  1. reduce and mitigate wildfire threats to communities and landowners,
  2. protect water quality and supply for communities and industry, and
  3. improve habitat conditions for at-risk species.

Proposals should be completed by June 25, 2021, and submitted electronically to the shared mailbox: NRCS.FS.Joint.Chiefs@usda.gov  The attachments provide the required proposal templates. A joint evaluation of proposals will be completed by FS and NRCS at National Headquarters in Washington, D.C. Selections will be announced prior to the beginning of FY22.
