The Softwood Lumber Board (SLB) has determined that funds should be focused on the following areas:



Focus AreaDescription%
Non ResidentialIncluding market development initiatives, codes and standards65%
Mid-High RiseSupporting research and innovation for mass timber building systems15%
ResidentialPromotion of lumber found in and around the home: appearance softwood lumber products such as treated wood, pine, cedar and redwood used in interior and exterior applications. Promotion of structural lumber in the home20%


It is important to note that these are approximate allocations only; actual funding will vary based on the scope of actual projects, so these percentages may vary. This should not been seen as an absolute, rather it is intended to signal to potential proponents where the SLB would like to focus its efforts.
