This funding is made available to Alpine County through the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act. The RAC works closely with the Forest Service to recommend projects that will benefit forest health, fish, wildlife, soils, watersheds, and other resources, maintain roads, trails, and other infrastructure, or control noxious weeds.
RAC projects must be located on National Forest System lands in Alpine County or on other nearby lands if the project will benefit the resources on the National Forest. Projects can be completed by the Forest Service, through partnership agreements with county entities or non-profit organizations, or by open-bid contracting with individuals and corporations. Applicants should contact the appropriate National Forest, Humboldt–Toiyabe, Eldorado, or Stanislaus, and ensure that the appropriate staffs are aware of the application.
Information about the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self Determination Act, RAC Projects, forms and instructions are available on the Secure Rural Schools website at
