The National Forest Foundation (NFF) Matching Awards Program (MAP) provides funding for results-oriented on-the-ground projects that enhance forest health and outdoor experiences on National Forests and Grasslands.

These projects provide a lasting impact to the lands, waters, and wildlife of the National Forest System through the alteration of the physical environment. There are two proposal deadlines, round 1: January 23, 2019 and round 2: June 13, 2019.
