PLC Seeks Proposals to Address Public Lands Issues

Fri, 07 May 2021 08:45:08 CDT

PLC Seeks Proposals to Address Public Lands Issues The Public Lands Council (PLC) has released a Request for Proposals (RFP) for Fiscal Year 2022 on subjects related to the public lands ranching industry, economic viability, natural resource stewardship, and other related issues. Each year, priority areas are identified by the PLC Board of Directors with the goal of addressing scientific and practical questions that affect cattle and sheep producers across the West.

This year, the PLC Board of Directors identified the following issues for successful applicants to consider:

1. Carbon Storage
What impacts do invasive annual grasses like cheatgrass and ventenata have on the carbon storage potential of an ecosystem?
How does livestock grazing (cattle or sheep) interact with carbon storage, organic matter volume, and other environmental/climactic metrics on public lands?
What is the best way to measure carbon storage potential on federal public lands, including grazing allotments, that account for impacts from other multiple uses?
2. Livestock and Wildlife
Are there demonstrable interactions between public lands grazing, and wildlife habitat and/or migration patterns?
3. Multiple Use
Material/producer tool creation for education, awareness, improvement of resolving multiple use conflicts on grazing allotments
4. Wildfire
How can grazing be applied to decrease the risk of catastrophic wildfire, or decrease the intensity of wildfire?
How does grazing affect carbon emissions/particulate matter dispersal during a catastrophic wildfire?
How can livestock be used as a tool to improve post-fire land management outcomes?
Projects that address other industry-related needs may be considered by the Board on a case-by-case basis.

Application Process
The Fiscal Year 2022 grant awards are intended to support projects from September 2021 through September 2022. The full RFP, Fiscal Year 2022 application, and further instruction are available on the PLC here. Applications and supporting documents must be submitted to later than Friday, July 16, 2021.
