Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Nevada nonprofits, units of government, landowners, tribes, and schools for projects that promote environmental restoration and preservation. Applicants must submit a pre-proposal prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended for activities and programs related to high-impact issues and landscapes of concern, with a focus on conserving working forests and rangelands, protecting forests and rangelands from harm, and/or enhancing public benefits from trees, forests, and rangelands. While project work can occur on all lands, grant funds can only be used for activities on non-federal lands. Project coordination with the USFS and other public land management agencies is encouraged.

Innovative projects are sought that integrate various programs (e.g., Forest Health, Forest Stewardship, etc.) and partners, and cross any combination of ownership, management or jurisdictional boundaries. Cross-boundary projects are encouraged as they expand project outcomes at watershed, regional and state levels. For example, within a watershed or Priority Landscape Area, multiple landowners and organizations might work together to do any combination of the following:

  • Assess needs and develop plans (e.g., landscape scale or watershed restoration plans)
  • Conduct actions or treatments on a broad scale to increase and maintain landscape resistance to disturbance and resiliency following disturbance. (e.g., treatments to improve and/or restore forest health and system function, rehabilitate riparian corridors, improve wildlife habitat, reduce hazardous fuels and/or invasive species, or mitigate development pressures and impacts from undesignated recreation) 
  • Increase forest related benefits to rural communities
  • Provide education and outreach to train landowners or organizations in sound stewardship practices (e.g., stakeholder workshops, statewide surveys to assess landowner attitudes and/or targeted marketing to increase statewide forest landowner participation).

Projects are encouraged to include an outreach or educational component that increases the understanding of relevant stakeholders and the general public.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligible applicants include state and local agencies, tribes, nonprofit organizations, private landowners, homeowner’s associations, and educational institutions.

For additional guidance on developing LSR pre-proposals contact NDF Stewardship Program Coordinator, Mike Vollmer.

LSR requires a 1:1 match commitment. Applicants are encouraged to provide as much match as possible. NDF is also able to assist with matching funds. LSR funds cannot be used on federal lands, but federal contributions can be used as leverage. Leverage can include federal resources used for project work in an area adjacent to the project location where grant funds will be used.

If funded, payments are on a reimbursement basis (after work is successfully completed and paid for by recipient).
