Joint Chiefs’ Landscape Restoration Partnership (JCLRP)

About

USDA's Forest Service and Natural Resources Conservation Service are working together to improve the health of forests where public forests and grasslands connect to privately owned lands.

Through the Joint Chiefs' Landscape Restoration Partnership, the two USDA agencies are restoring landscapes, reducing wildfire threats to communities and landowners, protecting water quality and enhancing wildlife habitat.

The partnership began in 2014, and each year the agency selects new three-year projects. 

2021 Projects

The The Forest Service and Natural Resources Conservation Service will invest more than $46 million this year through the Joint Chiefs’ Landscape Restoration Partnership for projects that mitigate wildfire risk, improve water quality, and restore healthy forest ecosystems on public and private lands. Funding for 37 projects includes $13 million for eight new projects and $33.3 million to complete work on 29 projects previously selected in 2019 and 2020.

Project Area Accomplishments

This year’s selections bring the total number of Joint Chiefs’ Landscape Restoration projects to 93. Since 2014, these projects have delivered important forest and rangeland funding to 40 states and Puerto Rico. They provide private landowners with conservation resources that help them complete restoration efforts on their land for healthier and more resilient forest ecosystems.
