Grants of up to $20,000 to Florida nonprofit organizations, state and local government agencies, tribal governments, and educational institutions to preserve and expand tree canopy throughout the State, specifically in developed and urban areas. Priority will be given to projects in fiscally distressed communities.
The primary purpose of this UCF grant program is to promote better urban forest management and to provide resources necessary for the retention and expansion of community tree canopy throughout the State of Florida. Trees are a vital component of urban infrastructure, but trees must be properly managed to maximize the benefits they provide to the community. By properly managing their tree infrastructure, communities can increase property values, tourism, appeal, and the physical and mental health of residents, while reducing stormwater runoff, energy consumption, and air and water pollution. Community forest management also helps to identify public safety hazards to residents and structures and is a useful tool in storm preparation.
