Grants of up to $15,000 to North Carolina nonprofit organizations, government agencies, homeowner's associations, and public educational institutions for projects related to community forests. Applicants must attend an informational webinar prior to applying. Funding is intended for management projects or educational activities that benefit community and urban forestry programs. Grants may be used within existing programs for new program development or program expansion.
The grant program has two complementing goals. The first is to increase the level of sustainable urban forest management in local communities. The second is to enhance the public’s knowledge of urban and community forestry, conservation, and best management practices and the economic, human health, and ecosystem services community forests provide. This is accomplished through the Grant program by funding projects in two broad categories: Management and Education & Outreach.
Projects should demonstrate how they address a community need and achieve Tree City USA or a Managing Community Designation by accomplishing a U&CF Component working in concert with the local community(s) in the project area(s).
