Feds and State Enter into Good Neighbor Authority Master Agreement in Oregon

Oregon Governor Kate Brown, U.S. Forest Service Regional Forester Jim Peña, Oregon Department of Forestry State Forester Doug Decker, and Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Director Curt Melcher  

Furthering work to advance healthy, resilient national forests, habitat, and communities, Oregon Governor Kate Brown, U.S. Forest Service Regional Forester Jim Peña, Oregon Department of Forestry State Forester Doug Decker, and Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Director Curt Melcher jointly signed a Good Neighbor Authority Agreement on March 29th.  

The Oregon Good Neighbor Master Agreement provides formal authorization for putting local projects into action as part of a statewide effort, allowing federal funds to be used by state agency staff or contractors to advance work directly on federal public land and leverage state and other dollars. The agreement allows the state, U.S. Forest Service, and local partners to work across ownership boundaries to focus on statewide results rather than jurisdictional or regulatory limitations.  Very Cohesive Strategy.
