National Forest Foundation Announces 2013 California Capacity-Building Grant Opportunity

In partnership with the U.S. Forest Service Pacific Southwest Region, the National Forest Foundation is pleased to announce a new funding program to benefit the National Forests of California and the communities that depend on them.

The Community Capacity and Land Stewardship (CCLS) grant program will provide grants of $5,000 to $24,000 to enable community-based organizations and collaborative groups to increase their capacity to facilitate and/or implement watershed or landscape-level restoration projects. Ancillary goals of the program are to build capacity to help meet other objectives associated with the creation of living-wage jobs that contribute to the economic sustainability of communities. Grants will be awarded for a period of one year.

Work may take place on or off of California National Forests Lands, but there must be a clear, direct benefit to their watersheds. Organizations are not required to match CCLS award funds, but are encouraged to leverage additional private and local, state, or governmental resources to show broad support for the project.

Proposals are due on or before July 1, 2013 and must be received hard-copy.
