The grants and programs of the US Forest Service are all geared towards the realization of its general agency mission, which is to "to provide the greatest amount of good for the greatest amount of people in the long run."

In keeping with this mission, the United States Forest Service has established the 2012 Hazardous Fuels Woody Biomass Utilization Grant wherein they intend to solicit proposals which are designed to implement wood energy projects requiring engineering services.

Basically, the projects that are covered under the program are those that desire to use woody biomass, that is the materials that have been obtained from forest restoration activities, insect and disease mitigation, wildlife hazardous fuel treatments, thinning overstocked stands, and forest management resulting from catastrophes and natural disasters.
