The Northeastern States Research Cooperative (NSRC) is a competitive research grants program specifically created for studies of the 26-million acre Northern Forest - a working landscape of largely rural communities spanning the states of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and New York. Authorized as an official entity by Congress in 1998, the NSRC supports cross-disciplinary, integrative, and collaborative research of ecosystems, economic development, community development, forest products, and conservation efforts to benefit the Northern Forest. Since 2001, the NSRC has distributed more than $63 million in competitive research grants to 77 projects and 24 institutions throughout the northeast, including funds to universities, non-profit organizations, USFS researchers, state agencies, and small businesses. Management of the cooperative is through the US Forest Service Northeastern Research Station in coordination with forestry research institutions in each of the four Northern Forest states.
