Cost-share Opportunities for Eastern Washington
Funding may be available to help you implement a variety of forest conservation and improvement practices: Supported by grant funds from the USDA Forest Service, DNR administers the Eastern Washington Forest Landowner Cost-Share Program to improve forest health and reduce the threat of bark beetle and wildfire damage in eastern Washington. Non-federal owners of forestland in eastern Washington, who own a total of no more than 5,000 forested acres in Washington state, are eligible to participate. For more information call 360-902-1706 or submit an application online.
The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) administers financial incentive programs, such as the Environmental Quality Incentive Program (EQIP), to promote conservation practices on farm, forest and ranch lands statewide.
These programs may also be able to offer financial assistance to landowners who wish to hire a private consulting forester to develop their forest stewardship plan.
