NESAF Grants are awarded periodically through an application and evaluation process. Society of American Foresters Chapters, Divisions and Societies are eligible to apply for special project grants from several sources both locally and nationally. Additionally, the New England SAF provides local grant monies to divisions of SAF within New England from funds specifically designated for that purpose. The NESAF Grants program is funded by the accumulated interest derived from the investment of income from the 1995 Portland, Maine National Convention. 

The NESAF Grants Program will fund approved projects developed for the following purposes: 

  • To educate NESAF’s many publics about professional forestry, and,
  • To advance the role of the profession in society by promoting the role of foresters in forest resource management
