In the Fall of 2016, RVCC released two publications—to better understand our all lands toolkit and to share stories of success.
From Ideas to Action:
A Guide to Funding and Authorities for Collaborative Forestry
Working across public and private boundaries is essential for addressing the ecological and economic challenges we face in the rural West. This new guidebook is intended to help community based organizations, collaborative groups, agency staff and others improve their understanding and use of existing tools that can facilitate all lands stewardship. It summarizes key NRCS and Forest Service programs (as well as their deadlines and requirements), offers tips and tricks for success, provides Ask an Expert sections, and more.
Rural Development through Land Stewardship:
Stories from the RVCC Network
USDA Rural Development funds offer up a unique opportunity to catalyze a much needed rural stewardship economy throughout the west. Learn more through case studies featuring RVCC network projects including the Western Juniper Alliance and restoration in Central Idaho.
