Stewardship Contracting

Stewardship Contracting Program

Stewardship End Result Contracting includes natural resource management practices seeking to promote a closer working relationship with local communities in a broad range of activities that improve land conditions. Stewardship contracting is a means for federal agencies to contribute to the development of sustainable rural communities, restore and maintain healthy forest ecosystems, and provide a continuing source of local income and employment.

The Eldorado National Forest has taken advantage of stewardship contracting authorities since 2004 to treat fuels, protect communities, and improve forest health and resiliency to wildfire.
