More than 300,000 acres of state trust grazing lands are involved in the Coordinated Resource Management (CRM) process. The goal of CRM is to empower local people to solve land use and natural resource issues, together, through collaborative problem solving.

The CRM program supports collaborative, locally-led processes to address natural resource issues. CRM applies to all communities and natural resource situations including areas dominated by public lands, private lands, or a mixture of the two.
