Committee members review proposed projects, determine funding, and provide recommendations to the Olsen. The committee typically meets in-person once or twice a year to review project proposals.

The committee members must reside in Kentucky, and for travel purposes, members should reside in close proximity to the national forest.

Applicants must complete two forms that are available online and provide background information and membership interest. Completed forms must be received no later than May 22.
