US Forest Service to provide orientation to potential businesses in El Yunque
By The Star Staff
The U.S. Forest Service on Thursday will provide potential tourism service providers in El Yunque National Forest with orientation on how to submit proposals for new businesses in the environs of the forest.
“We invite interested individuals to review the prospectus document and submit their proposal within the deadline,” said the Forest Service in a written statement late last week.
To support the applicants, the Forest Service, along with Vitrina Solidaria, will offer guidance and technical assistance to complete the documentation and writing of the proposal in English. The orientation will take place from 10 a.m. to noon at Solidarity Headquarters, located in the El Portal visitor center in El Yunque.
Space for in-person orientation is limited to 25 spots. Interested parties must register online. There will also be a virtual option via Zoom. The link for virtual participation will be sent by email after registration.
The deadline to submit proposals is Jan. 16, 2024.
For more details, those interested can visit the official website and social networks of the El Yunque National Forest or send an email to SM.FS.EYNFSU@USDA.GOV.
