Consolidated Funding Application and Tree Grants

Consolidated Funding Application and Tree Grants – Now Open

Tree Grants
Round 14 of NYSDEC’s urban forestry grants or “tree grants” are now open on the grants gateway. These funding opportunities will support tree planting, maintenance, tree inventory, education programs, and community forestry management plans. Grants are available to municipalities, public benefit corporations, public authorities, school districts, soil and water conservation districts, community colleges, not-for-profit organizations, and Indian nations or tribes. Awards range from $11,000 to $75,000, depending on municipal population. Tree inventories and community forestry management plans have no match. Tree planting, maintenance, and education program projects have a 25 percent match.

DEC foresters are available to provide applicants with technical assistance. For more information on each of the three
tree grant opportunities see the following links:

Not-for-Profits should check their qualification status and municipalities may want to check that the correct people
are assigned roles in Grants Gateway. There will be a webinar addressing this opportunity on May 10th, 2018 at
10:00am and 2:00 pm. Here’s the Grants Gateway link: https://grantsreform.ny.gov/.
