CFLR Program Frequently Asked Questions
How would leveraged funds fit into proposal?
There are two potential types of leveraged funds. Funds that would be used to implement and monitor restoration treatments on NFS lands and funds that would not be used on NFS lands, but would support the landscape restoration. Sec. 4003 (b) (5) requires an estimate of the annual federal funding and new non-federal investment. Sec. 4 (c) (3) requires documentation of federal funds and evidence on other landowners’ intentions to participate. Funds used to implement and/or monitor restoration treatments on NFS lands would be eligible for matching CFLRF funding. Funds that would not be used to implement and/or monitoring ecological restoration treatments on NFS lands are not counted as matching funds. However, these leveraged funds would likely make the proposal more competitive in regards to several selection criteria identified in Sec. 4003 (d) (2).
