Funding Opportunities for Forest Landowners

 

Don’t get thrown off by what you imagine it might cost to put some of these ideas into practice. Many public agencies offer funding to help forest owners pay for stewardship activities and realize their woodland goals. Whether you envision a habitat-rich stand bursting with forage shrubs and large snags; a business plan for timber harvest on your land; or an aesthetic retreat replete with meandering trails, these cost-share programs can help you get there.

  • EQIP cost share – The Natural Resources Conservation Service’s Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) is cost-share funding resource for woodland owners. The program provides payments to landowners to support new management plans and a host of conservation practices such as fuels reduction, pre-commercial thinning, and replanting.
