Call for FY 2010 Forest Pest Suppression Proposals - Suspense 30 September 2009
The USFS Forest Pest Suppression Program is free to our projects. This is a great opportunity for our projects to get assistance and 100 % free funding from the FS if they are experiencing problems such as gypsy moths, oak wilt, southern pine beetles, etc.
If you have any questions please feel free to call me. FY 2010 Proposals for funding are due back to me no later that close of business on 30 September, 2009. Projects can E-Mail their proposals to me (provided they are coordinated with their District and Division). If you received FPS funds in FY 09 you need to complete attachment 5 and forward it to me by COB 30 September 2009.
Participation in the FPS program is voluntary. However, I do strongly encourage you to ensure coordination with the Regional Office of USFS concerning any proposal a project would submit. That effort significantly increases the possibility of having a proposal approved.
Per discussions with my FS counterparts, proposals that are focused on prevention rather than suppression or eradication have a minimal chance of being funded. Keep your proposals realistic. The range of a typical project that is successful in being funded is $1,000 up to approximately $100,000.
