Documenting leveraged and matching funds from federal, state, private, and foundation sources is part of project monitoring and is critical in showing both the broad support for the project as well as documenting the pooling of resources to restore the landscape.
- Please enter leverage or match for each month they are generated.
- Match are funds, in-kind donations and services, and goods traded for services lead to directly implement treatments and project monitoring.
- Leverage are funds or in-kind services that help meet project objectives in the landscape but do not directly relate to treatment implementation and monitoring.
- Please provide the most accurate data available.

Definitions for Match and Leverage from the CFLR Program (http://www.fs.fed.us/restoration/documents/cflrp/AnnualReportWorkPlan/2012/Annual_Report_Template_Instructions_2012.docx):
Match: Match is appropriate non‐CFLR Federal, partner and other funds, in-kind services, and the value of goods traded for services in stewardship contracts expended during the Fiscal Year to implement treatments and monitor a CFLR project on National Forest System Lands as outlined in the project proposal. In the category of match, “appropriate non‐CFLR Federal” funding includes all Forest Service, as defined in the Program Direction, and other federal agency funding that is used for implementing treatments and monitoring of the CFLR project on NFS lands and that was not appropriated through the Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Fund.
Leverage: Leverage is those funds or in-kind services that help the project achieve objectives as outlined in their proposal within the defined landscape, but do not meet the qualifications of match. Examples of leveraged funding includes, but is not limited to: investments in restoration equipment, worker training for implementation and monitoring, purchase of equipment for wood processing that will use restoration by‐products from CFLR projects, investments to meet project objectives on non‐NFS lands that are within the defined landscape, and other expenditures to carry out the project as described in the proposal.
