Roadmap for Success

Reaching our goals requires working first to understand the challenges and aspirations of Hispanic Forest Landowners. Then, we take what we learn to create an educational network of experts, technical service providers, and bilingual materials that engages and promotes Hispanic Forest Landowners while also working to strengthen the United States Department of Agriculture’s ability to meet the needs of HFLs by placing young Hispanic agricultural professionals in internship opportunities across the country. We hope to create a meaningful and sustainable impact on the Hispanic Forest landowning community nationwide and in Puerto Rico through these three initiatives.

Where We are Active

The 2021 mano-Y-ola Hispanic Forest Landowner Study identified eight states, along with the island of Puerto Rico, as having significant historical and statistical indications of HFLO presence. It is within these areas that we intend to concentrate our virtual and in-person outreach efforts.
