CARAComment Analysis Response Application: an emNEPA tool found within the GovDelivery (electronic messaging program) which will be the Forest Service's new way of collecting public comments during scoping, public review, and objection periods of FS projects. Comment letters will be posted in the public reading room and accessible from that project's website. From a project webpage, comments can be submitted using the web form by selecting "Comment on Project" under "Get Connected" on the right panel of the project website. The GovDelivery email system will be used to inform "subscribed individuals" when a project is open for comment.

CECategorical exclusions: actions which meet the definition contained in 40 CFR 1508.4, and, based on past experience with similar actions, do not involve significant environmental impacts. They are actions which: do not induce significant impacts to planned growth or land use for the area, do not require the relocation of significant numbers of people; do not have a significant impact on any natural, cultural, recreational, historic or other resource; do not involve significant air, noise, or water quality impacts; do not have significant impacts on travel patterns; and do not otherwise, either individually or cumulatively, have any significant environmental impacts.

CFLRPCongress established the Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program (CFLRP) with Title IV of the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009 (PDF, 40 KB). The purpose of the CFLRP is to encourage the collaborative, science-based ecosystem restoration of priority forest landscapes. This Act includes Title IV: Forest Landscape Restoration. The purpose of this title, and the USDA Forest Service Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program is to conduct hazardous fuel treatments and ecosystem restoration that encourages economic and social sustainability, leverages local resources with national and private resources, reduces wildfire management costs, and addresses the utilization of forest restoration byproducts to offset treatment costs and benefit local economies

Farm Bill, 2014The new Farm Bill will allow USDA to continue record accomplishments on behalf of the American people, while providing new opportunity and creating jobs across rural America. It will enable USDA to further expand markets for agricultural products at home and abroad, strengthen conservation efforts, create new opportunities for local and regional food systems and grow the biobased economy. It will provide a dependable safety net for America's farmers, ranchers and growers. It will maintain important agricultural research, and ensure access to safe and nutritious food for all Americans.

FRCCFire Regime Condition Class: A natural fire regime is a general classification of the role fire would play across a landscape in the absence of modern human mechanical intervention, but including the influence of aboriginal burning (Agee 1993, Brown 1995). The five natural (historical) fire regimes are classified based on average number of years between fires (fire frequency) combined with the severity (amount of replacement) of the fire on the dominant overstory vegetation.

GISGeographic Information System
51
GRAIPAn important first step in managing forest roads for improved water quality and aquatic habitat is the performance of an inventory. The Geomorphic Roads Analysis and Inventory Package (GRAIP) was developed as a tool for making a comprehensive inventory and analysis of the effects of forest roads on watersheds. 
52
GRAIP Lite
GIS version of GRAIP and it was designed to quickly prioritize watersheds based on road-related sediment production and delivery. It requires a road layer embedded within a GIS. In NetMap, the road layer is integrated within a Digital Hydroscape. GRAIP-Lite requires calibration datasets to calculate road erosion and they are included in NetMap’s GRAIP interface. Users are encouraged to apply the full GRAIP technology to develop calibration datasets for their own landscapes.

IRAInventoried Roadless Area: The definition of a roadless area for the
2001 Roadless Rule included: undeveloped areas typically exceeding 5,000 acres that
met the minimum criteria for wilderness consideration under the Wilderness Act and that were inventoried during the Forest Service’s Roadless Area Review and Evaluation (RARE II) process, subsequent assessments, or forest planning. The 1982 planning regulations and the Forest Service Handbook used the term “roadless areas” when referring to areas to consider for wilderness recommendation. The
2005 Planning Rule (now the 2008 Planning Rule) and the current Forest Service Handbook now use the term” potential wilderness areas” when referring to areas to consider for wilderness recommendation.

NEPAThe National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) is a United States environmental law that established a U.S. national policy promoting the enhancement of the environment. Additionally, it established the President's Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ). The law was enacted on January 1,1970.

NFMANational Forest Management Act (P.L. 94-588) is a United States federal law that is the primary statute governing the administration of national forests and was an amendment to the Forest and Rangeland Renewable Resources Planning Act of 1974, which called for the management of renewable resources on national forest lands. The law was seen as necessary, because a lawsuit (commonly known as the Monongahela decision) had invalidated many timber practices in the national forests.

Retained ReceiptsRetained Agencies receipts are certain kinds of money received by an Agency that it may retain and spend by adding the amounts to its departmental appropriation. Section 31 of the FMA Act enables an Agency to increase its most recent departmental item by the kinds of receipts that are prescribed in regulation 15 of the FMA Regulations.
