Mississippi Forestry Commission (MFC)
Grants of up to $20,000 to Mississippi nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and educational institutions for the development of self-sustaining, long-term community and urban forestry programs. Funding is intended to increase local capacity, training and continuing education, volunteer involvement, and planning.
Projects that demonstrate use of funding to provide the largest impact will receive priority. Grantees are encouraged to do projects of state-wide significance such as training, publications, or research that could be used to provide information on a statewide basis. First-time municipal applicants and municipalities seeking Tree City USA status are also given priority for funding. Tree planting and demonstration projects will have the lowest priority for funding.
