The U.S. Forest Service is seeking nominations for the Secure Rural Schools Resource Advisory Committee for the Greater Rocky Mountain region.
The RAC will decide how to use funds allocated through the SRS program for projects on federal lands in the region.
Like the Department of the Interior’s Payment in Lieu of Taxes program, or PILT, SRS compensates for lack of tax revenues in areas dominated by federal land and affected by the decline of the timber industry.
The newly formed Greater Rocky Mountain RAC is in need of 15 members to serve 4-year terms. The call for nominations notice says the committee should be comprised of five members each from three categories.
