Sierra Nevada Conservancy unveils draft grant guidelines for Healthy Forest program

Sierra Nevada Conservancy released Draft Grant Guidelines for its 2011-12 Healthy Forest Grant Program funded by Proposition 84. The Draft Grant Guidelines are now available for public comment.

Based on direction given by the SNC Governing Board, half (about $5 million) of its remaining Proposition 84 Funds will be awarded to Healthy Forest projects and there will be a pre-application process. That direction has significantly changed the Draft Guidelines from previous grant rounds. As you review the new Draft Guidelines, please note that fee title acquisitions are not eligible and please pay particular attention to the application process, grant funding caps, eligible projects and evaluation criteria. A companion Grant Application Packet (GAP) is being developed to help applicants invited to submit full applications.

Send any questions or comments to by Aug. 15. Please include “comments” in the subject line of your email.

The final draft of the Grant Guidelines with changes to reflect public comment will be presented to the SNC Governing Board for review and approval at its September board meeting.
