Funding Opportunities - Requests for Proposals
Future Forest Economy Initiative - Call for Concepts (Ongoing)
The Future Forest Economy Initiative — a cooperative initiative between the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA), U.S. Endowment for Forestry & Communities, and the Northern Forest Center — is accepting proposals for funding that respond to a congressional mandate to support the development of markets for wood products. Over the next three years, the Initiative cooperators will provide $2.6 million in sub-grants to projects that deliver regional approaches to:
- Innovate new forest products and the business infrastructure to commercialize them;
- Create market demand for wood and wood products across the Northeast and New York;
- Enable the conditions that allow businesses and communities to benefit from these innovations.
