Advisory Committees

 

Resource Advisory Committees (RAC)

The purposes of the Secure Rural Schools Act include making investments and creating employment opportunities by prioritizing and implementing projects that improve the maintenance of existing infrastructure, implementing forest stewardship objectives, and restoring and improving land health and water quality. Members of the RAC will review projects proposed under SRS Title II by participating counties, and coordinate with the Forest Service in recommending Title II projects. RAC members also provide opportunities for other interested parties to participate in developing Title II projects, monitor project implementation, and make recommendations for project adjustments or changes as needed.
