Partnership Agreements

In 2010, the SWCC was selected in a competitive process as one of 10 Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration (CFLR) projects nationally to receive up to $4 million annually for 10 years with a 1:1 matching requirement to collaboratively implement and monitor fuel reduction and restoration projects. Matching funds may include a combination of Forest Service appropriated funds, permanent and trust funds, forest product value exchanged for restoration treatments (in stewardship contracts) or partner non-cash, cash, and in-kind contributions.

Some tools the Forest Service has available to implement restoration and monitoring within the Southwestern Crown of the Continent landscape (SW Crown) are partnership agreements. Using partnership agreements for implementing and monitoring fuel reduction and restoration projects increases local economies and capacities and contributes to the 1:1 CFLR matching requirement. Partnership agreements are voluntary and may last up to five years.

List of SWCC Partnership Agreements (updated January 2017): This table shows the SWCC partnership agreements that have received CFLRP funds since the inception of the program (2010). It shows the cooperator (column 1), the projects (column 2), and the amount of CFLRP funds provided to the cooperator (column 3). Column 4 shows additional non-cash match provided by the Forest Service, usually Forest Service staff time to assist with the work. Column 5 shows the cooperator match (may be cash or non-cash) brought to the project. Finally, it shows the total cost of the project (column 6: combined Forest Service and cooperator contribution) and the percent of the total project costs provided by each partner (columns 7 and 8). The cooperator’s contributions must be at least 20% of the project total. Click HERE for an example of how and why this is calculated.
