We are pleased to announce the 2022 Communities Caring for Canopy grant program. Applications are due January 7th, 2022.
Communities Caring for Canopy grants act as seed funding to help communities care for their publicly managed trees and forests by taking the necessary actions to developing and sustaining a community-wide tree program. These grants allow for multiple program components (e.g. tree planting, tree maintenance, planning, public outreach, staff and tree warden training) to be merged into one grant application for ease and flexibility.
$50,000 in 1:1 cost-share grants is available for 2022. The minimum funding for proposals is $1,000 and the maximum funding for proposals is $5,000. These funds will be distributed through a competitive grant review and selection process.
