Eastern Idaho Resource Advisory Committee Is Accepting Project Proposals for Fiscal Year 2016

December 30th, 2015

IDAHO FALLS, ID: The Eastern Idaho Resource Advisory Committee will be accepting proposals for review and consideration for funding for Fiscal Year 2016.  The deadline to submit proposals is Friday, January 29, 2016.

“We estimate about $350,000 to award for 2016,” said Caribou-Targhee National Forest Supervisor and Designated Federal Officer Garth Smelser.  “Resource Advisory Committee participation enables local county residents to have a meaningful role in how federal funds are spent on public lands.”  The funds are available through the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self Determination Act.

Resource Advisory Committee-funded projects must be located on National Forest System Lands within the Resource Advisory area (Bannock, Bear Lake, Bingham, Bonneville, Caribou, Clark, Franklin, Fremont, Jefferson, Madison, Oneida, Power and Teton counties), or on nearby lands if the project will benefit resources on the National Forest. Projects can be completed by Forest Service personnel, through partnership agreements, or by open-bid contracting with individuals and corporations.
