- Increase awareness among member organizations of The Corps Network about USDA Forest Service partnership opportunities through Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and Inflation Reduction Act (IRA).
- Solicit input about how Conservation Corps can support IIJA and IRA priorities.
- Communicate USDA Forest Service intent regarding expanding partnerships with NGOs.
Join The Corps Network on Monday, September 12, for a webinar with our partners at the Forest Service. Staff from the USDA Forest Service will share information about Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and potentially Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) funding priorities, including reforestation and hazardous fuels management. The webinar will include brief statements by presenters about the purpose of the funds and specific activities that may align well with the mission of Conservation Corps and other non-government organizations who are working in the workforce development and natural resources space. Short presentations by presenters will be followed by questions and answers. Input from member organizations of The Corps Network is welcome and encouraged.
Note: This session is part of The Corps Network’s Public Lands Service Working Group Convening in DC. You do not need to register for this Zoom meeting if you plan to attend the convening in person
