State & Private Forestry Redesign


The purpose of a new approach to State and Private Forestry is to shape and influence forest land use on a scale, and in a way, that optimizes public benefits from trees and forests for both current and future generations.

Competitive Resource Allocation Process

The State & Private Forestry (S&PF) Redesign assumes that our collective efforts will be most effective if available resources are focused on issues and landscapes of national importance and prioritized, using state and regional assessments, on activities that promise meaningful outcomes on the ground. This concept is captured as: focus + priority = outcome. A "competitive resource allocation" was identified as an effective means of ensuring that federal S&PF dollars are invested in projects that meet this standard.

Beginning in federal fiscal year 2008, a percentage of the S&PF allocation was invested in projects selected through a competitive process. These processes are informed by national guidance, and administered through a joint effort between the state forestry and USFS leadership in the northeast, south and west. Each geographic region designs their competitive process to address geographically significant issues and landscapes as well as the broad themes and direction provided at the national level.

This site provides information on projects funded through this process in fiscal years 2009 through 2013.
