The Angeles National Forest and National Fish and Wildlife Foundation have opened applications for $150,000 in grants for landscape-scale restoration efforts in the forest.
Starting Friday, June 29, ANF and NFWF welcome proposals for the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument Community-Based Trails Management Grant.
This partnership between the U.S. Forest Service and NFWF will leverage the expertise, capacity and passion of partners, with funding dedicated for trail management activities in the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument.
Approximately $150,000 will be available for award through this grant cycle. Applicants must contribute at least a 1:1 ratio in matching value to the requested amount. However, grant applications that exceed that requirement are encouraged.
Details of the program, application information and submittal deadlines are available through NFWF’s website.
In addition, a webinar describing the program goals and priorities, application requirements and process, and other relevant information for applicants will be held on July 12.
Registration information for the webinar is also posted on the website identified above. This grant opportunity is a part of our larger partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and ANF for the recovery, improvement and protection of Southern California landscapes and watersheds.
Thank you very much for your time, interest, and dedication to the health of the Angeles National Forest and the benefits it brings to the surrounding community. We look forward to engaging with ANF partners, building relationships, and working in collaboration to manage, protect, and enjoy this great resource.
