Forests and woodlands across the state of Arizona are in need of market development opportunities to facilitate on‐the‐ground restoration activities. The Arizona Department of Forestry & Fire Management and the USDA Forest Service are committed to advancing the installation of commercially viable wood energy systems in the public and private applications that use woody biomass generated from public lands and other land ownerships, in Arizona.
The Department of Forestry and Fire Management, with funding provided by the USDA Forest Service, is soliciting cost‐share project proposals for woody biomass utilization projects. The funds are made available to assist with the financial costs of procuring preliminary engineering assessments, wood energy conversion feasibility studies, and wood fiber supply studies. Funds originate from the USDA Forest Service and are awarded and administered as sub-grants from the department.
The Biomass Enterprise Grant Program is supported by USDA Forest Service funding.
