FHP Whitebark Pine Restoration Funding (FY2024)

The U.S. Forest Service’s Forest Health Protection (FHP) is now accepting project proposals for its Whitebark Pine Restoration Program. Applications are open to non-governmental organizations, universities, and state, tribal, and federal agencies. FY2024 proposals should emphasize ground management activities or applied research and fit into one of the six key areas: assessing health and monitoring, operational cone collections, harnessing rust resistance, enhancing regeneration and reducing competing vegetation, education/outreach, and other projects related to whitebark pine ecology and restoration. Project proposals must be submitted to Candee Wilfong ([email protected]) by December 15, 2023. Priority will be given to projects that help restore whitebark pine on the ground.
