ONF Calling for 2014 Title II Project Proposals
Olympia, WA - Olympic National Forest is soliciting proposals for Title II projects to be initiated in fiscal year 2014. Funding will be provided through the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act which was reauthorized for another year. This act provides payments to counties as compensation for the loss of tax income associated with federal land within their boundaries.
Title II projects are designed to enhance forest ecosystems, restore and improve water quality and land health, or improve the maintenance of existing infrastructure. By law, projects must be located on National Forest System land or provide benefit to resources on National Forest lands. Past projects have included watershed restoration, stream stabilization, invasive plant treatments, and road maintenance.
