Department of Agriculture - Woody Biomass Utilization Grant

Synopsis:

Over the past few years, the TMU has administered the national woody biomass utilization grant program. This program focuses on helping communities and rural businesses improve efficiencies in processing and using woody biomass removed from forest restoration activities, such as reducing hazardous fuels, handling insect and diseased conditions, or treating forestlands impacted by catastrophic weather events. These funds are targeted to help communities, entrepreneurs, and others turn the by-products of forest restoration activities into marketable forest products and/or energy products.

Goals of the grant program are:

• Promote projects that target and help remove economic and market barriers to using woody biomass for renewable energy.

• Assist projects that produce renewable energy from woody biomass while protecting the public interest.

• Reduce the public’s cost for forest restoration by increasing the value of biomass and other forest products generated from hazardous fuels reduction and forest health activities on forested lands.

• Create incentives and/or encourage business investment that uses woody biomass from our nation’s forestlands for renewable energy projects.

Deadline: Apr. 8, 2013.
