The North Coast Resource Partnership (NCRP) is pleased to offer project development technical assistance through the NCRP Regional Forest & Fire Capacity (RFFC) program for projects that improve forest health, increase fire resiliency and adapt to climate change. Direct technical assistance will be provided by a team of regional experts and may include site assessment, mapping and GIS analysis, greenhouse gas calculations, cost estimates, permitting support, project benefits quantification and preliminary project design. The purpose of the technical assistance support is to help build projects that are permit ready and competitive for funding and implementation. The NCRP expects to provide between $5,000-$15,000 in technical assistance support for priority projects over multiple rounds of funding.

To apply for the project technical assistance, please submit a concept proposal that describes the project and the nature of the technical assistance requested. The deadline for submission of the project development concept proposals for technical assistance is October 15, 2020.
