Mass Timber: Better Buildings, Resilient Forests, Brighter Future

We're creating equitable economic development and family-wage rural and urban jobs from sustainable wood products that are grown and manufactured in Oregon.

The U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) has awarded Oregon Mass Timber Coalition a $41.4 million Build Back Better grant to advance Oregon’s sustainable mass timber sector. This investment will drive jobs, sustainable forestry, and mass timber housing.

About the Coalition

The Coalition is a partnership between Oregon’s leading research universities and government agencies.
