DNR‘s Urban and Community Forestry Program (UCF) 2014 grant applications are now available on our grant resources pageApplications are due by 4 p.m., February 28

UCF is offering three grant opportunities:

  • Community Forestry Assistance Grants.
  • Inventory Grants.
  • Tree Planting Grants – NOTE: these grants are limited to communities with current Tree City USA recognition or those that are applying to become a Tree City USA this year.

If your community is a Tree City USA, the announcement and links to applications were sent directly to your community’s Tree City USA contact.

Grants are offered in partnership with the US Forest Service Urban and Community Forestry Program. They may be awarded to local units of government, 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, or tribal governments. Community tree volunteer groups and neighborhood associations, while not directly eligible to apply, are encouraged to develop their projects in conjunction with an eligible organization.
