Deadline: July 2, 2012
Description: The NFF Matching Awards Program (MAP) provides matching funds for direct on‐the‐ground and citizen‐based monitoring projects benefiting America’s National Forests and Grasslands. Successful projects will support the major strategic initiatives and current priorities of the NFF and the U.S. Forest Service. Priority will be given to action-oriented projects that proactively address at least one of the programmatic emphasis of wildlife habitat improvement, recreation, watershed health and restoration, and community-based forestry through on-the-ground conservation projects or citizen-based monitoring. Projects must have significant community involvement or civic engagement in the pre-implementation, implementation, or post-implementation phases. Environmental education, kiosks and signage are not program priorities and will only be considered as minor, critical components of larger projects.
