The North Carolina Forest Service has begun accepting applications for assistance to woodland owners who suffered losses in 2018-19 from hurricanes Florence, Michael and Dorian. The support available through the Woodland Recovery Assistance program offers management planning and technical assistance. This includes funding to work with either Natural Resource Professionals or the N.C. Forest Service for comprehensive plan preparation services.
All application requests for funding must be reviewed, submitted and approved by the N.C. Forest Service. Applications will be approved if eligible on a “first come – first serve” basis in the order that they are accepted by the agency. Program grant funding is set to expire December 31st, 2023 or sooner if all available funding is fully allocated before this date.
For additional details, see the Woodland Recovery Assistance section of the N.C. Forest Service website.
