USDA funds $33.7 million to strengthen the timber products economy

Posted on April 14, 2023   |  

USDA will fund $33.7 million in projects to boost the timber products economy and encourage forest management. 

This investment will reduce wildfire risk, sustain existing jobs, and create new economic opportunities in tribal and economically disadvantaged communities.

$29 million will be for the establishment and reopening of businesses that buy and process small-diameter timber biomass products from projects on federally managed land.

$4.7 million will fund momentary water crossing for skidders and other hefty forestry equipment to support timber processing facilities. 

The funding will assist in executing a cost-share program that enables the usage of momentary water crossings across all lands.
