Grant Opportunities

There are a number of grants available that are relevant to woody biomass utilization projects. This section explains and identifies relevant programs. Although many woody biomass to energy grants and secured loan programs are available from the Department of Energy and USDA, there are actually very few programs that can benefit smaller and non-energy projects.

Grant programs are constantly changing and we aim to keep you up to date with the latest developments in the most relevant programs.
