Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest seeks committee members to help distribute grant money
The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest has received $207,983 of Title II funds through the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act.
The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest is seeking members of the community to serve on the Resource Advisory Committees to recommend how the Title II dollars will be spent in neighboring counties.
Committee members represent a diverse group of interests and programs. They are selected by the Secretary of Agriculture and serve four-year terms. Members are not paid for their service, but they can be reimbursed for travel expenses to meetings. Replacement members are also needed, should a committee member leave.
Any Wisconsin resident interested in serving on the committee must complete an application form that will be used for a required background check. Applications can be found at www.fs.usda.gov/main/cnnf/workingtogether/advisorycommittees.
