Request for Proposals

The FHM program annually issues a request for Evaluation Monitoring proposals (see below). Proposals are submitted to FHM Regional Managers who review and submit the top proposals for funding to a national competition. The National FHM Program Manager works with a National Review Panel to select proposals for funding based on the following criteria:

  • Linkage to DM Surveys and FIA P2 and P3 plot data;
  • Significance in terms of the geographic scale;
  • Biological impact and/or political importance of the issue;
  • Feasibility or probability that the project will be completed within 3 years.

Previously funded, multi-year proposals from prior years are given priority if the investigators report sufficient progress each year. The FHM Management Team requires that results and progress reports for all EM projects be summarized in posters presented at the annual FHM Working Group meeting. Upon project completion, investigators submit a final published report, and an executive summary to FHM.
