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. Proposals will be accepted by the Bridgeport Ranger District of the U.S. Forest Service.
RAC projects must be located on National Forest System lands in Lyon and Mineral Counties or on other nearby lands, if the project will benefit the resources on the national forest. Projects can be completed by Forest Service personnel, through partnership agreements, or by open-bid contracting with individuals and corporations.
Projects can be proposed on-line through the Secure Rural Schools web-site https://fsplaces.fs.fed.us/fsfiles/unit/wo/secure_rural_schools.nsf or they may be submitted via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please contact Kim Clemons at 760-932-7070 for other methods of submitting projects (i.e., fax or mail). Projects need to be submitted by May 2, 2014.
The RAC will begin reviewing projects for possible funding during their meeting on May 14, 2014, at the Commissioners Meeting Room, in the Lyon County Administration Complex, on 27 South Main Street, in Yerington, Nevada. The public is welcome to attend the RAC meeting. For more information on the Committee or to learn more about proposing projects, please contact the RAC Designated Federal Officer, Jeff Ulrich, at 760-932-7070.
