Rural Nevada Resource Advisory Committee to accept project proposals for Humboldt County

The Rural Nevada RAC Resource Advisory Committee (RAC) is seeking applications for projects that benefit natural resources on the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest and nearby lands in Humboldt County. The RAC will have approximately $78,000 to spend on projects made available to through the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act (SRS) Title II Program.

The Rural Nevada RAC works closely with the USDA 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. Project proposals will be accepted through Friday, May 6, 2022.

RAC projects must be located on National Forest System (NFS) Lands in Humboldt Counties or on other nearby lands if the project will benefit resources on NFS lands. Projects can be completed by Forest Service personnel, through partnership agreements, or by open-bid contracting with individuals and corporations.

Projects can be submitted the following ways:

MAILED: RAC Designated Federal Officer Jose Noriega, Ely Ranger District, 825 Avenue E, Ely, Nevada 89301.
