06-1-1 More Information Actions
Proposals are sought to obtain, document, and evaluate critical, time-sensitive information or data during or immediately following future wildland fire incidents (wildfires and wildland fire use fires). Proposals should address the biological, social, cultural, or physical effects of wildland fires or evaluate the effects of post-fire treatments for slope stabilization or rehabilitation. Proposals are also sought that identify, document, and evaluate factors that influence an agency administrator?s decision processes related to selecting the appropriate management response and strategy. Proposals that will evaluate the effects of previous land management activities (such as mechanical treatment and/or prescribed burning that removed biomass) on fire behavior, fire severity, and/or fire effects will receive the highest priority for funding. Response teams must meet the requirements described in Section D - Special Requirements. Closed on Dec 14, 2005

06-1-2 More Information Actions
Proposals are sought to collect post-fire data on wildland fires that burned in 2005, which address the biological, social, cultural, or physical effects of wildland fires (wildfires and wildland fire use fires) or evaluate the effects of post-fire treatments for slope stabilization or rehabilitation. Proposals should address wildland/urban interface areas and issues as appropriate. Proposals that analyze and describe relationships between pre-fire condition and fire behavior, at local to landscape scales, specific to the effects of previous land management activities (such as mechanical treatment and/or prescribed burning that removed biomass) will receive the highest priority for funding. Proposals should take advantage of sites where pre-fire data is available on fuel treatments, fuel characteristics, and/or stand structure; such sites are strongly preferred. Closed on Dec 14, 2005

06-2-1 More Information Actions
Proposals are sought to directly address locally important knowledge or data gaps associated with planning and implementation of wildland fire, fuels treatment, or post-fire treatment actions that are specifically identified by an agency administrator (see definition section H). (Proposals, which address post-fire salvage logging and BAER treatments, should be submitted under AFP 2006-3) Closed on Dec 14, 2005

06-3-1 More Information Actions
Proposals are sought that will support the needs of wildland fire managers and policy makers in understanding past, current and future natural fire regimes and aid in the ability to assess current departures from historic conditions. Closed on Dec 14, 2005

06-3-2 More Information Actions
Proposals are sought that support the needs of wildland fire managers and policy makers in assessing the cumulative effects of wildand fuels treatments at the landscape level. Closed on Dec 14, 2005

06-3-3 More Information Actions
Proposals are sought that develop guidance for maintaining effective fire and non-fire fuels treatments, with the aim of supporting long-term fuels management. Closed on Dec 14, 2005

06-3-4 More Information Actions
Proposals are sought that evaluate the effects and effectiveness of post-fire management activities, including but not limited to burned area emergency stabilization, rehabilitation, restoration treatments, and post fire removal of woody material (e.g., salvage logging, biomass utilization). Closed on Dec 14, 2005

06-4-1 More Information Actions
The JFSP requests pre-proposals (two pages) for studies that will build on or extend results of completed JSFP research, propose re-measurement of past study sites or experimental plots, or evaluate and test models or modeling systems. Closed on Dec 14, 2005
