The 2008 Farm Bill amended the Cooperative Forestry Assistance Act (CFAA) by requiring States to complete a statewide assessment of forest resource conditions and a long-term statewide forest resource strategy.
The new requirements are intended to ensure that Federal and State programs are targeting shared management priorities and achieving meaningful outcomes. For the State to be eligible to receive CFAA funding, State Assessments and Strategies must be completed by June 2010 and updated every 5 years thereafter.
The District of Columbia Assessment of Urban Forest Resources and Strategy is submitted to the Northeastern Area State and Private Forestry Program for the Government of the District of Columbia by the Urban Forestry Administration in the District Department of Transportation.
