Landscape Scale Restoration Competitive Grant Program


The Landscape Scale Restoration (LSR) Competitive Grant Program supports high impact projects that promote collaborative, science-based restoration of priority forest landscapes, leverage public and private resources, and advance priorities identified in a State Forest Action Plan or other restoration strategy.

The objective is to focus competitive LSR funds on activities that address priority areas, challenges and opportunities facing western lands. Funding for the LSR Competitive Process is made possible through the USDA Forest Service.

WFLC is charged with delivering the LSR competitive grant process in the West. Our LSR grants team reviews, scores, and makes recommendations on project proposals from western states and Pacific Island territories, which are passed along to the WFLC membership for approval. Proposed projects recommended for funding are then sent to the Forest Service.
