Funding will be awarded to two separate categories outlined as follows.
GRANT CATEGORY 1: EXPANSION OF WOOD ENERGY MARKETS
The intent of this category is to:
1. Stimulate, expand, or support wood energy markets that depend on forest residues or forest byproducts generated from all land types.
Projects can include, but are not limited to:
2. Complete requirements, such as engineering designs, cost analyses, and permitting, necessary in the later stages of wood energy project development to secure financing.
GRANT CATEGORY 2: EXPANSION OF WOOD PRODUCTS MARKETS
The intent of this category is to promote markets that create or expand the demand for non-energy based wood products. Preference will be given to projects that support commercial building markets or other markets that use innovative wood products. Wood energy projects will not be considered under this category because those projects can apply for funding under Grant Category 1. Demonstration projects and applied research will be considered, but applicants are strongly encouraged to first consult with their designed Forest Service Regional Biomass Coordinator to determine whether such projects will be competitive.
