SBL pledges $420K to match Wood Innovations grants


To support market innovation in wood products, the Softwood Lumber Board announced it will pledge $420,000 in matching funds to the U.S. Forest Service's 2022 Wood Innovations grant program.

Wood innovation grants help develop and expand the use of naturally low carbon wood products, supporting sustainable forest management, particularly in areas of high wildfire risk, according to the SLB.

"We are pleased to support these grant programs because they exemplify how a public/private partnership can encourage and promote innovation throughout the industry," Ryan Flom, the board’s chief marketing officer, said in a statement. "In turn, those innovations can dramatically improve the built environment, and forest health, to everyone's benefit."
