The Lassen County Resource Advisory Committee is announcing another round of requests for proposals for use of funds provided by the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self Determination Act (PL112-141), a.k.a. Payments to States. This is the latest round of funding under the amended and reauthorized legislation now set to expire in September 2013.
The funds can be used for national forest watershed restoration and road maintenance.
In addition, they may be used for national forest wildlife and fish habitat improvement, control of noxious and exotic weeds, soil productivity improvement, improvement in forest ecosystem health, re-establishment of native species, recreation, and trail projects.
The funding may also be used on lands adjacent to the national forest so long as the projects show strong benefits to the adjoining national forest land and resources.
Projects that leverage funds with in-kind and cash matching funds are highly encouraged. Projects must be located within Lassen County.
Proposals must be submitted by close of business, or 4:30 p.m., September 14th, 2012 to Lassen County Resource Advisory Committee, Attn: Heidi Perry-McCourt, Lassen National Forest, 2550 Riverside Dr., Susanville, CA 96130.
