Success Story: Sierra Institute is awarded Capacity Building Grant

The Sierra Institute was awarded a $250,000 grant from USDA Rural Development to continue an educational program for communities developing forest bioenergy and biomass business parks.  The Rural Community Development Initiative (RCDI) grant provides capacity building funding for rural communities engaged in development of housing, community facilities, or community/economic development projects.   The applicant must be an intermediary organization which provides capacity building assistance to local development organizations.  A new round of funding is now out with a deadline of August 13th.  More information at: http://www.rurdev.usda.gov/HAD-RCDI_Grants.html
