Wednesday, Jan. 3, 2001 The Plumas National Forest is soliciting proposals for fed- era] assistance under the For- est Service Economic Action and Community Assistance program components of the National Fire Plan. Proposals must support fire protection planning and biomass utiliza- tion projects within high fire threat areas, should empha- size local employment, and should be coordinated with Io- ta] human resource programs where appropriate. Counties, cities, federal, state or local governmental agencies, federally recognized tribes, and non-profit organi- zations~ such as Resource Con- servation and Development Areas, Resource Conservation Districts, and Economic Devel- opment Districts, may apply. Federal assistance can consist of technical assistance, grants, agreements and contracts. The area federal, state, tribal, or county fire protection agency must support proposals for them to be considered for funding. Eligible projects under the Economic Action Program must have the potential to re- duce fire hazards to communi- ties, watersheds, or threatened and endangered species by providing incentives for eco- nomic use of small diameter and underutUized forest prod- ucts. Funds could be used to: pro- vide training; for technical or financial assistance to identify and develop new markets for underutilized wood products; prepare market assessments or feasibility studies; provide marketing assistance; develop business plans; or partner with universities or non-profit organizations to purchase wood processing equipment to demonstrate economic use of underutilized materials. Eligible projects under the Economic Action Program Pi- lot Project must be pilot or demonstration projects that expand existing markets or de- velop new markets for wood products resulting from fuels removal. Examples include: biomass to energy applications; com- post; pulp; landscaping mulch; animal bedding; wood in transportation, such as vehic- ular or pedestrian bridges; The Plumas County Board of Supervisors will conduct its regular monthly meetings Jan. 9. 16 and 23 in the fourth floor boardroom of the court- house. A special meeting has been scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 25, in the Mineral Build- ing at the fairgrounds. The special meeting will ad- dress HR 2389--the Secure Rural Schools and Communi- ty Self-Determination Act of 2000. Often referred to as the safety net bill, the legislation is designed to ensure timber receipt payments to those counties throughout the na- tion with a large percentage of federal land. Key decisions must be made this year to ensure the timely implementation of the bill. This will include a discussion about the intent of the bill, its resource advisory areas, the resource advisory committee structure and its potential members. The local advisory commit- tee will consist of 15 individu- als, five from three different areas. Supervisor Bill Dennison s id he believes that represen- tatives from each of these ar- eas should attend the meeting. The first area consists of: or- ganized labor, outdoor recre- ation including OHV users, energy and mineral develop- ment, the commercial timber industry, and those who hold federal grazing or other per- mits. The second area consists of: national and regional environ- mentalists, recreation groups, archaeologists, and represen- tatives of recognized wild horse groups. The third area consists of: political leaders, Native American tribes, school teach- ers or officials, and the public. i R round timber construction demonstrations, such as visi- tor centers, kiosks, phrk shel- ters and buildings framed with small diameter materi- als. Significant technical assis- tance may be available to as- sist in development and imple- mentation of such projects. Projects must be able to serve as a model for others to follow and include plans to dissemi- nate and share what is learned through the pilot or demon- stration project. Funds can be used to design or purchase wood processing equipment for demonstration and for po- tential broad application. Eligible projects under the Community Planning for Fire Protection Program must pre- pare plans to reduce fire haz- ards to communities. These might include community Fire Safe Plans, small diameter uti- lization business plans, or fuel reduction project plans. The first step in the grant application process is to com- plete a relatively simple one- page concept form, which asks for a basic description of the project and estimated costs. A copy of the concept form and other information or assis- tance may be obtained by ac- cessing the web at , from Michael De Lasaux of the Plumas County Fire Safe Council, who can be contacted at (530) 283-6125 and is located at 208 Fairground Road, Quincy, or from Betty Holder of Plumas National Forest, who can be contacted at (530) 283-7891 and is located at 159 Lawrence Street, Quin- cy. The concept form should be returned by Feb. 13, to Michael De Lasaux or Betty Holder. Conceptual applica- tions will be reviewed that week. After the review, applicants with the most competitive con- cepts will be invited to submit a complete proposal applica- tion by March 15. The federal contribution to the implementation of a pro- ject shall not exceed 80 percent of the total cost of the project in calculating the federal con- tribution; project budgets must take into account the fair market value of equipment, personnel, services, and ad- ministrative and other costs provided by the Forest Service and other federal agencies. Local contributions may in- clude cash or the fair market value of equipment, personnel and services provided to com- plete the scope of work defined in the project.
