The U.S. Forest Service awarded the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design at the University of Arkansas the Wood Innovations Grant, which will be used to establish a Housing Innovation Center (HIC) at the University.
- The epicenter: The HIC is part of a “bold project” to address the need for affordable and sustainable housing in Arkansas. The center will foster the development of mass timber housing throughout the state with all wood sourced from Arkansas.
- In process: The new center will be located in the U of A’s Windgate Art and Design District and is slated to open in 2023.
