Completing Your Annual Accomplishment Report Webinar

January 31, 2019 - 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

online

REGISTER

Learn about the New Jersey Urban and Community Forestry  (NJUCF) Program's Annual Accomplishment Report (AAR). The report is a fillable PDF and is the same format used last year. This webinar will walk you through the steps involved in filling out the form, focusing on areas such as the budget and the timeline section. Program participants must submit their 2018 Annual Accomplishments Report by February 15, 2019. The reports are used to assess the needs of the state's local urban and community forestry programs in order to provide the most needed and relevant assistance possible. 

Submitting an AAR and remaining accredited with the NJUCF Program is critical to being able to earn points for the Tree & Woodlands Management Actions in the Sustainable Jersey program. In addition, participants can also earn 1 NJUCF CEU.

If you have questions, please contact Terri Slack of the NJ Urban & Community Forestry Program at (609) 777-4187 or Terri.slack@dep.nj.gov.
