The Intertribal Timber Council and the USDA Forest Service are hosting a series of Workshops designed to develop, refine and implement a shared stewardship project
proposals on national forests and adjacent tribal lands and resources using USDA FS 638 project-level authority. This workshop intends to discuss new
opportunities for shared stewardship under the Tribal Forest Protection Act,
including discussions of applicable 2018 Farm Bill provisions, by:
I. Identifying opportunities to implement 638 focused Shared Stewardship Projects.
II. Creating understanding of USDA FS 638 authority
III. Initiating and supporting planning for 638 projects between USDA FS and Tribes
Tribal leaders, program directors, agency line officers, and key staff are invited to join us for this important virtual workshop. Due to challenges posed by COVID-19, the workshop will be held in four (4) virtual sessions.
