CFLR Program Frequently Asked Questions
Does the Act prohibit the use of the funds off of NFS lands using Wyden authority? Can the matching Regional money be used for work off of NFS lands using Wyden authority and still be counted as a match?
The Act states that the CFLR Fund can be “used to pay up to 50% of the cost of carrying out and monitoring ecological restoration treatments on National Forest System land”. Therefore, neither the CFLR funds, nor any of the funds counted as match for the CFLR funds can be spent off NFS lands. This means these funds are not eligible for use through the Wyden authority. Other Regional money can be used for work off NFS lands using the Wyden authority within the CFLR landscape where appropriate, but these funds cannot be counted as match against the CFLR funds.
