(This amendment provides $100,000 each year from the general fund to support the Natural Resources Leadership Institute. The Institute is a partnership between the Department of Forestry, Virginia Tech's Cooperative Extension Offices and the UVA Institute for Environmental Negotiation. The institute provides training to working professionals in industry, small and independent businesses, local, state and federal government, educational institution and environmental civic and nonprofit organizations. The goal of the training is to foster decision making on environmental and land use through collaborative problem solving to avoid costly and divisive processes. The funds will be matched equally by funds from tuition, grants and private donations.)
