Advisory Panel

The Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program (CFLRP) was reauthorized in the 2018 Farm Bill. The Agency is working to re-establish a CFLRP Advisory Panel, as required by the Farm Bill, to evaluate, support, and provide recommendations on each nominated CFLRP project. Additional details are forthcoming.

CFLRP Advisory Panel

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.

Apply or Nominate a CFLRP Advisory Panel Member

We will be recruiting strong candidates for the CFLRP Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) to consult with the Secretary on decisions regarding new project selection and case-by-case extensions for existing 10-year projects.

Per the legislation, the FACA Advisory Panel nominations will include experts in: Ecological restoration, Fire ecology, Fire management, 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.
