Temporary Bridge Funding Opportunity

United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) - Forest Service


Agency: Federal

GrantWatch ID #206714

Grant Description

Grants to USA state agencies and Tribes to protect water resources and water quality. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to finalize. Funding is intended to cover costs associated with establishing rental programs for portable skidder bridges, bridge mats, or other temporary water crossing structures, to minimize stream bed disturbance on non-Federal land and Federal land.

The intent of this funding opportunity is to support the establishment of temporary bridge rental/loan/cost-share programs with States and federally recognized Indian Tribes to protect water resources and reduce water quality degradation during forestry-related operations. This program is funded by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

The USDA Forest Service is announcing the availability of up to $8 million in funding to support the establishment of temporary bridge rental programs for portable skidder bridges, bridge mats, or other temporary water crossing structures, to minimize stream bed disturbance on non-Federal land and Federal land. 

Eligible Programs

States: Each State should develop a program that utilizes one or more of the options below to maximize the needs of the State and end users.

  • Loan programs – bridges are loaned at no cost to a bridge user for a specific project and returned at the end of the project.
  • Rental/lease programs – bridges are rented at a predetermined fee to a bridge use participant for a project and returned at the end of the project. (It is recommended that rental fees be used for maintenance of bridges).
  • Cost-share programs – bridge use participants pay a share of the bridge cost to the state and gain custody of the bridge for their use. Bridge use participants are responsible for care and maintenance of the bridge. States in conjunction with partners to determine optimum cost share match requirements.

Indian Tribes: Each Indian Tribe should develop a bridge program that best meets the interest of the Tribe.

Information about eligible expenses can be found on page 3 of the NOFO. See Supporting Documents, below.
