Funds for these programs come from the U.S. Forest Service State and Private Forestry (S&PF) branch to address urban to rural forest conservation, protection and enhancement needs as identified in Idaho’s Forest Action Plan. IDL works to ensure that federal dollars are invested in locally supported projects that address issues of national importance and provide meaningful, lasting, and measurable outcomes.
