Funding Opportunity: Tongass Community Capacity and Land Stewardship
In partnership with the US Forest Service Alaska Region, the National Forest Foundation is pleased to announce the continuation of the Community Capacity and Land Stewardship grant program for Southeast Alaska in 2013.
The program provides one-year grants of up to $24,000 to enable organizations and collaborative groups to build their capacity to convene, plan, and monitor watershed and landscape projects. Additionally, the program strives to help organizations build internal and community capacity to meet objectives associated with the creation of jobs that contribute to the economic sustainability of communities. Work may take place off of the Tongass National Forest, but there must be a clear benefit to its 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 March 5, 2013 and must be received hard-copy.
