*** New Grant Program ***
COMMUNITY-BASED FORESTRY INITIATIVE
Funded by The Ford Foundation.
Project Managers: The Aspen Institute Rural Economic Policy Program and
The Pinchot Institute for Conservation
A Request for Proposals (RFP) has been announced by the Ford Foundation
for short-term organizational development grants for domestic
community-based forestry projects. This is a planning component, and is the
phase of what will become a multi-year initiative. Phase One is designed to
help grantees refine their strategic plan and/or project concept prior to
moving on to implementation. Each proposal will need to address three key
aspects of the project: social, environmental and economic. Fifteen to
twenty awards will be made, up to $40,000 each. Proposals for Phase One are
due July 1, 1999.
The selection team is looking for a mix of applicants (including small
emerging organizations) whose proposed paths seem relevant to the larger
field of community-based forestry and who stand a reasonable chance of
succeeding at the project that they propose.
The full RFP is available on-line at http://www.aspeninstitute.org/rural/.
