Per the legislation, the FACA Advisory Panel nominations will include experts in:

- Rural economic development
- Strategies for ecological adaptation to climate change
- Fish and wildlife ecology
- Woody biomass and small-diameter tree utilization
Applications for FACA panel members will be available soon and posted on this website. Applications for new CFLRP project areas and extensions for 2010 CFLRP projects are expected to be released summer 2019 and will available on this website as well.
The 2018 Farm Bill, which became law on December 20, 2018, includes a reauthorization of the Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program (CFLRP) through fiscal year 2023. See the Farm Bill language about CFLRP (amendments to the original 2009 CFLRP legislation on pg. 376). Depending on appropriations, the 13 CFLRP projects selected in 2012 will be prioritized for funding their final two years of planned implementation.
