Program Description

The U.S. Forest Service is providing leadership and funding on behalf of a USDA multiagency Wood to Energy Initiative by offering this Request for Proposals to support collaborative statewide wood energy teams that advance the installation of commercially viable wood energy systems in the public and private sectors that use woody biomass generated from National Forest System lands and other land ownerships. Public-private statewide teams are invited to seek funding to support the development of geographic and/or sector-based clusters of wood energy projects. Activities may include, but are not limited to, a) workshops and assistance that provide technical, financial, and environmental information; b) preliminary engineering assessments; and c) community outreach needed to support development of wood energy projects in the public and private sectors. Only proposals for work planned in States that have National Forest System lands will be considered. Completed electronic applications are due to the Regional Biomass Coordinator designated for your Forest Service region by 11:59 p.m. on May 20, 2014. Each submittal must consist of two separate PDF (or Word) files, as follows: 1. Proposal narrative and appendices (SWET Application Part 1 & Part 2, and Appendices) 2. Financial forms (SWET Application Part 3) For more details, visit http://www.na.fs.fed.us/werc/ and click on the link to the 2014 Statewide Wood Energy Teams Program.
