The Community Forest Program (CFP) is a competitive national grant program offered by the U.S. Forest Service that provides financial assistance to tribal entities, local governments, and qualified conservation non-profit organizations to acquire and establish community forests.
The U&CF Program helps aid in the development of long-term, self-sustaining urban and community forestry programs. The program’s goal is to inspire or enhance local or statewide urban and community forestry programs with an emphasis on increasing local capacity, volunteer involvement, planning, training, and continuing education.
The Mississippi Forestry Commission offers two grant programs designed to help our state’s volunteer fire departments obtain equipment and supplies needed to fight wildland fires.
This program provides rural volunteer fire departments with excess equipment that is no longer needed by the Department of Defense (DoD).
Through this program eligible rural volunteer fire departments are reimbursed for funds spent on approved wildland firefighting equipment and communication equipment.
