Researchers establishing a blight resistant planting in the Hoosier National Forest

Overview

The FY 2015 Presidentís Budget proposes $275,315,000 for Forest and Rangeland Research, a decrease of $17,490,000 from the FY 2014 Consolidated Appropriations Act. The State and Private Forestry forest Resources Information and Analysis program is moved under the Forest and Rangeland Research appropriation. The request provides $66,805,000 for the Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program, the same level as the FY 2014 Consolidated Appropriations Act.

Key Research

The Forest and Rangeland Research appropriation provides funds to develop and deliver knowledge and innovative technology to improve the health and use of the Nationís forests and rangelands in public and private lands. Funding maintains key research associated with the Strategic Program Areas (SPAs) and Priority Research Areas (PRAs). The PRAs are the mechanism Forest Service R&D uses to address urgent current and emerging broad-level issues. Within the PRAs, multiple areas may be addressed which are funded through the SPAs (long-term research programs including fire, wildlife, invasives, among others).
