Abstract: The USDA Forest Service, State & Private Forestry, Technology Marketing Unit, located at the Forest Products Laboratory, will again be requesting proposals for forest products projects that increase the use of woody biomass from or near national forest lands. The National Woody Biomass Utilization Grant Program is intended to help improve forest restoration activities by using and creating markets for small-diameter material and low-valued trees removed from hazardous fuel reduction activities. These funds are targeted to help communities, entrepreneurs, and others turn residues from hazardous fuel reduction projects into marketable forest products and/or energy products. In fiscal year 2008, $4 million was available for the Program. The Request for Proposal (RFP) will be similar to the program offered in 2007 and 2008. Individual grants will not be less than $50,000 or more than $250,000. The maximum length of the award is 3 years from the date of award. Written, quarterly financial and semi-annual performance reports will be required. Forest Products Laboratory ? Technology Marketing Unit One Gifford Pinchot Dr. ?
