The steps that follow include:

  1. FPInnovations can come out to the community to deliver a “Building Wealth with Wood” information session to the community leaders and will listen to the needs of the community. We will help the leaders develop a project that fits with the community’s values, goals and objectives.
  1. Once the scope of the project is agreed to, FPInnovations will develop a letter of understanding (LOU) between the community and FPInnovations
  1. FPInnovations will carry out the project and fulfill the agreed upon deliverables
  1. An impact statement is developed by the community and is sent to FPInnovations
