Landscape Scale Restoration Grants

The purpose of the Landscape Scale Restoration (LSR) competitive grant program is to encourage collaborative, science-based restoration of priority forest landscapes, leverage public and private resources, and support priorities identified in State Forest Action Plans. The LSR request for applications comes out once per year.

Organizations interested in helping States and the USDA Forest Service attain our mutual goals should familiarize themselves with the relevant State Forest Action Plan(s) and discuss project ideas with the State forestry agency. Coordination with State Forester(s) is essential.
