The Ecosystem Monitoring Fund was established in 2021 to support forest ecosystem monitoring projects in the seven-state FEMC program area (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont). The goal is to provide support for the collection, aggregation, analysis, and utilization of forest ecosystem monitoring information to better understand the current threats, historical trends, and future directions of the forested landscape in the Northeast.

Requests for proposals for the Ecosystem Monitoring Fund will be announced annually for projects up to two years in duration. Proposals can be in support of new monitoring programs or to extend or enhance current monitoring.
