Emergency Forest Restoration Program (EFRP)
The Emergency Forest Restoration Program (EFRP) helps the owners of non-industrial private forests restore forest health damaged by natural disasters. The EFRP does this by authorizing payments to owners of private forests to restore disaster damaged forests.
For land to qualify for EFRP funds, the damage from the natural disaster must create new conservation problems that if not dealt with would:
Harm the natural resources on the land
Significantly affect future land use
Only owners of nonindustrial private forests with tree cover existing before the natural disaster occurred are eligible to apply. The land must be owned by a private individual, group, association, corporation or other private legal entity that has decision making authority on the land and doesn’t use the land for business purposes.
