Ford Foundation Community-Based Forestry Project
As part of the Ford Foundation Community-Based Forestry
Demonstration Project, a series of economic base studies were
constructed for 13 forestry communities in the United States. Many of
the communities were previously resource-based economies that are
going through the transition to more service-centered economies.
The materials located on this website, except where noted otherwise,
are made possible through a grant to the Penn State EMS Environment
Institute from the Ford Foundation.
The Poverty in America website,
Community Economic Toolbox,
and Living Wage Calculator were
created by West Arete Computing,
a company that specializes in academic and research computing.
