Request for Technical Assistance Proposals
IDENTIFYING NORTH COAST REGION TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE NEEDS
The North Coast Resource Partnership (NCRP) is pleased to offer Technical Assistance (TA) to Tribes and economically disadvantaged communities in the North Coast region to support project development and grant applications. Current TA is funded by the following program and proposals should address the goals of this program:
- NCRP Regional Forest & Fire Capacity (RFFC) Program - to build local and regional capacity and develop, prioritize, and implement strategies and projects that create fire adapted communities and landscapes by improving ecosystem health, community wildfire preparedness, and fire resilience.
TYPES OF TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE
Technical assistance is intended to increase the capacity of project sponsor organizations by providing them with services and expertise not otherwise available to them. A significant goal of the TA program is to enable project sponsors to apply for and receive grant funding for implementation projects or other forms of capacity enhancement. Types of TA provided by NCRP-approved consultants may include organizational capacity building, strategic planning, grant development, preliminary project design/planning, site assessments, mapping and GIS analysis, permitting, project benefits quantification, and cost estimates. Technical assistance awards are provided in the form of a contract between NCRP and a NCRP-approved TA provider authorized to provide consulting services. Contracts are within the range of $5,000-$15,000. Click on this link for a list of NCRP TA providers who can be requested by project sponsors to provide TA.
Eligible applicants include federally recognized Indian Tribes, California State Indian Tribes, and organizations serving economically disadvantaged communities: public agencies, local or state agency/special districts, Resource Conservation Districts, non-profit organizations, and public utilities. Please see the NCRP interactive map to determine disadvantaged community status at https://northcoastresourcepartnership.org/data/.
For project sponsors submitting a new proposal for additional TA for an existing or ongoing project, the first TA contract must be completed, and all deliverables and final report submitted, before a new TA proposal can be considered for further funding. Project sponsors will need to justify the request for additional TA in the Technical Assistance Application Supplemental Information Form.
