Advisory Committees

Siuslaw Resource Advisory Committee (RAC)

In 2000, Congress signed the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act (Public Law 106-393), also known as Payments to Counties, to provide support for counties that have historically depended on income from federal timber programs. The national forest works with the Resource Advisory Committee (RAC) to select projects available for funding under Title II of the act.

These projects may be proposed by individuals, non-profit organizations, local governments, or others and must restore watersheds, decommission or maintain roads, control noxious weeds, or otherwise improve the condition of the Forest. Proposed projects need not be implemented on Forest Service lands, but must show benefit to national forest resources.
