American Indian firms sought for forests
The U.S. Small Business Administration will assist in the economic development of American Indian small businesses by supporting the creation of 20 firms that will reduce wild land fire risks to people, communities and the environment.
The establishment of these American Indian firms is part of the SBA's implementation of the President's Healthy Forests Initiative, designed to reduce the threat of destructive wildfires to the nation's forests, communities and endangered species.
