The Quinault Indian Nation has been selected to receive a $205,000 U.S. Forest Service Woody Biomass Project Utilization Grant for engineering and design work on a proposed biomass heating project for new and existing tribal facilities in Taholah.

Fawn Sharp, Quinault Nation President, said the grant is a step forward “in our ongoing program to achieve more energy independence, using clean and sustainable sources.”

The tribe has been investigating the use of forest biomass material, generated from forest management practices, as fuel for heating new or existing tribal facilities.

Existing tribal facilities to be retrofitted for a biomass heat facility include the Tribal Health Clinic, Department of Natural Resources/Executive Office Complex and the Administration Complex.

A study project began with the development of a partnership between the Quinaults and Columbia-Pacific Resource Conservation & Economic Development District (ColPac), Grays Harbor County and Greater Grays Harbor Inc.
