Ecological Restoration Funding
The majority of Lomakatsi’s funding comes through various federal and state agency programs designed to accomplish forest and watershed restoration and habitat improvements.
Funding is distributed to Lomakatsi to accomplish restoration work and operate our programs under the framework of long-term partnership agreements with federal and state natural resource management agencies. These mechanisms include cost-share arrangements where Lomakatsi provides matching funds. Lomakatsi and agency partners enter into the framework of long-term stewardship agreements, participating agreements, cooperative agreements, and Memorandums of Understanding that outline a specific scope of work, deliverables, and how the shared financial resources will be used.
Public Education Funding
In addition to federal and state sources used for accomplishing forest and watershed restoration projects, smaller portions of our funding are provided by private foundations, membership donations, and private donors. These are used to support organizational capacity for restoration projects and program development.
