Forest Service Grants and Agreements: People and Processes

August 15 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Forest Service grants and agreements are essential tools for delivering funding and working in partnership with communities. The processes behind these tools, including how they are selected and how they progress from idea to implementation, can be both involved and variable based on a project’s context, Forest Service unit, agency priorities and other factors. Our panel of Forest Service staff – each from different regions and with different roles in the grants and agreements process – will walk through various ways these tools are implemented in practice, important steps and strategies, and advice for partners to be successful with grants and agreements. Panelists: Mike Ward, Fuels Program Manager, USFS Southern Region Midori Raymore, Director, Office of Grants and Agreements, State, Private & Tribal Forestry, Eastern Region Gina Knudson, Partnership Coordinator, Salmon-Challis National Forest in Idaho

This series is hosted by the Watershed Research and Training Center, with support from Coalitions and Collaboratives. We are part of a group of nonprofits partnering with the U.S. Forest Service on a new Community Navigator initiative. The initiative aims to connect communities with funding and partnership opportunities for climate and wildfire resilience.
