Landscape Scale Restoration (LSR) Grant Program

The LSR Program is one of FFSL’s Cooperative Forestry Programs in partnership with the
USDA Forest Service, State & Private Forestry. In 2008, the Forest Service began developing a
competitive grants program for state forestry agencies to develop and implement collaborative
landscape-scale forest restoration projects. The LSR competitive grants process among Western
states has been developed and administered by the Western Forestry Leadership Coalition

Forest Service guidance for the new LSR legislative authorities maintains administrative
responsibilities with State forestry agencies. Per this guidance, Utah FFSL is
revising its LSR competitive grant processes to enable newly eligible entities to participate and
to encourage the strongest possible LSR project applications from Utah for the competition
among Western states.

FFSL will administer the grant applications process, the grant awards process, and the grant-reporting process for the LSR Program, in cooperation with WFLC and the Forest Service.
