Deadlines and process...


FLEP is authorized in the Public law 107-171 which is in effect until September 30, 2007. Deadlines for use of funds within a State will be determined by each State forestry agency.

Note: When available, this section indicates the deadlines for applications to the funding agency which will be stated in terms of the date(s) or between what dates the application should be received. When not available, applicants should contact the funding agency for deadline information.

Range of Approval/Disapproval Time

Established by each State forestry agency.

Preapplication Coordination

Each State must prepare a State Priority Plan that is concurred in by the FS Regional, Area, or Institute Responsible Official before any funds can be disbursed. A management plan must be prepared before a landowner is eligible for cost-share assistance, except where the practice is development of a management plan.

Note: This section indicates whether any prior coordination or approval is required with governmental or nongovernmental units prior to the submission of a formal application to the federal funding agency.


Start with the State Forestry agency, through the FS Regional, Area or Institute Official, with final decisions by the Chief of the Forest Service if no decision is made at a lower level.

Note: In some cases, there are no provisions for appeal. Where applicable, this section discusses appeal procedures or allowable rework time for resubmission of applications to be processed by the funding agency. Appeal procedures vary with individual programs and are either listed in this section or applicants are referred to appeal procedures documented in the relevant Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).


Established by each State forestry agency.

Note: In some instances, renewal procedures may be the same as for the application procedure, e.g., for projects of a non-continuing nature renewals will be treated as new, competing applications; for projects of an ongoing nature, renewals may be given annually.
