Grants and Contracts Details
The Sun Grant Initiative, authorized under Section 9011 ofthe Farm Bill, encompasses all ofthe land grant universities in each State and U.S. territory into five bio-geographical regions, with its overall purpose to coordinate and support research and education programs on bioenergy and bio-product development. The Regional Biomass Energy. Feedstock Partnership, being catalyzed by DOE and supported by USDA, will utilize this' unique regional land grant university network to develop a consortium that focuses on feedstock issues on a regional basis. For FY 2007, primary focus activities that DOE funds will support include biomass resource assessment, development of biomass-related agronomic and forestry sustainable practices, and crop development (including dedicated "energy crops"). A secondary focus will be education and outreach. Activities in FY 07 will set the stage for meeting the joule targets in the FY 2008 budget request for regional feedstock partnerships.
