The Northeastern States Research Cooperative (NSRC) is a competitive grant program that supports cross-disciplinary, collaborative research in the Northern Forest — a 26-million acre working landscape that is home to over a million residents and stretches from eastern Maine through New Hampshire and Vermont and into northern New York. A central component of the program is the importance of the Northern Forest to society and the need for research activities to have relevance and benefit to the people who live within its boundaries, work with its resources, use its products, visit it, and care about it.

The NSRC funds a wide range of projects that fit into four research themes. Researchers study a variety of topics including but not restricted to: forest management, forest products, biodiversity, conservation, water quality, acid deposition, biogeochemistry, climate change, carbon sequestration, forest health, protected area management, land use planning, recreation and tourism, and community participation and decision-making.
