View of lake surrounded by trees and mountains.The federal government, including the U.S. Forest Service, is authorized under several laws to collaborate and work with partners to carry out projects. There are laws that provide additional authorities and instruments for working in partnership and collaboration with communities, individuals, and organizations. The formal documents for these partnerships are documented with either a grant or agreement depending on the work to be done and the type of funding.

Projects currently include a wide variety of activities such as, but are not limited to, work in weed management, recreation, fire prevention and education, fuels, wildlife, restoration and watershed management.
