The Cherokee National Forest Resource Advisory Committee (RAC) proposes projects and funding to the Secretary of Agriculture under Section 203 of the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self Determination Act of 2000, (as reauthorized as part of Pub. L. 110-343). The Cherokee National Forest RAC consists of 15 people selected to serve on the committee by Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack. Two Tennessee counties, Cocke and Monroe, are setting aside a percentage of their Secure Rural Schools Act payment under Title II of the Act to be used for projects on Federal land. The RAC will ultimately review and recommend projects to be funded from this money. Projects approved must benefit National Forest land. Projects can maintain infrastructure, improve the health of watersheds and ecosystems, protect communities, and strengthen local economies.
The agenda for the first meeting of the Cherokee National Forest RAC will focus on a general overview of the Secure Rural Schools Act and election of a chairperson. RAC meetings are open to the public.Start Signature
