Lincoln Resource Advisory Committee Seeks Project Proposals from Public

Contact(s): Willie Sykes

LIBBY, Mont. February 4, 2021 – The Lincoln Resource Advisory Committee (RAC) is seeking proposals for projects that would enhance forest ecosystems or restore and improve land health and water quality on the Kootenai National Forest. Over $468,000 has been allocated to RAC projects this year. These funds are made available to Lincoln County through the Secure Rural Schools and Self-determination Act.

The Secure Rural Schools and Self-determination Act provides funding for a variety of activities that benefit federal lands and resources. Title II projects fund work such as watershed restoration, noxious weed abatement, thinning trees, fuels reduction, enhancing recreation sites, and maintaining roads and trails. Individuals, non-profit organizations, and local governments can submit Title II project applications.

Proposal ideas should be directed to each district ranger where the project proposal resides. All project proposals need to be approved by the district ranger before they are submitted. New project application forms are available at http://www.fs.usda.gov/main/pts/home. The deadline for project proposal submission is April 9, 2021. No late projects or modifications to submitted projects will be accepted after the April 9 date.
