Forest Service grants fund two projects in Kentucky

Kentucky Today — The U.S. Forest Service is investing nearly $74 million to spark innovation, create new markets for wood products and renewable wood energy from sustainably sourced wood, and increase the capacity of wood processing facilities.

The grants were announced as part of President Biden’s Investing in America agenda and were made possible in part by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and the Inflation Reduction Act. Considered the largest climate investment in history, these investments fund 171 project proposals in 41 states, including two in Kentucky, and are intended to directly support forest health and the wood products economy.
