AEA Biomass Engineering Design and Permitting Request Alaska Energy Authority, Alaska Wood Energy Development Task Group

Deadline passed on 1/30/2018. Deadline for 2019 Unknown. The Alaska Energy Authority (AEA) is one of the partners in the Alaska Wood Energy Development Task Group (AWEDTG), whose mission is to increase the responsible use of wood heating systems in Alaska. For the last eight years, the AWEDTG has been providing pre-feasibility studies to communities interested in wood heating systems for community buildings. This program is funded through grants from the U.S. Forest Service with matching funds provided by the State of Alaska, and the pre-feasibility studies are provided at no cost to the communities. In order to continue the project development of strong wood heating projects, the AEA would like to fund the next step in the biomass project development process (design and permitting) to prepare projects for financing. The applicants selected to be awarded funding can choose either a pass-through community-managed grant or an AEA-managed project. Monthly progress reporting will be required. Eligible projects are limited to wood heating projects in communities in Alaska that have completed a prefeasibility assessment or feasibility study within the last 10 years.

2019 National Urban and Community Forestry Grant Program USFS

Deadline Passed 04/30/2018. Deadline Unknown for 2019. The National Urban and Community Forestry Advisory Council advises the Secretary of Agriculture on the status of the nation’s urban and community forests and related natural resources. The Council seeks to establish sustainable urban and community forests, by encouraging communities of all sizes to manage and protect their natural resources, which, if well managed, improves the public’s health, well-being, economic vitality, and creates resilient ecosystems for present and future generations. The Council recommends urban and community forestry projects that have national or multi-state application and impact through the U.S. Forest Service’s competitive Urban and Community Forestry Challenge Cost-Share Grant Program. A proposal’s content must meet the Urban and Community Forestry program authorities as designated by Congress in the Cooperative Forestry Assistance Act, (Section 9 PDF, pp. 19-24) State & Private Cooperative Forestry Handbook of Programs and the annual criteria set forth by the Council. A listing of the previously funded projects can be viewed at Urban Forestry South list of past NUCFAC grants. Funding Opportunity #: USDA-FS-UCF-01-2019
