10/20/21 11:59 PM
Grants of up to $50,000 to Arizona nonprofit organizations, local units of government, public educational institutions, and tribal governments for projects that improve local forests. Applicants must complete required registrations prior to submitting a proposal. This grant program focuses on activities to encourage and promote citizen involvement in supporting long-term and sustainable urban and community forestry programs at the local level.
Community Challenge Grants are intended for promoting and enhancing the quality of Arizona’s urban and community forests. The program aims to fund projects that might not otherwise be funded through existing budgets, and research project funding is intended as “seed-grants” because of the limited funding available. All proposed projects should be designed to improve the long-term health and care of the urban forest, or initiate new urban forestry projects in Arizona communities.
In order to be eligible, all proposals must meet at least one of the State’s strategic goals for urban and community forestry outlined in the Arizona Forest Action Plan.
In evaluating grant proposals, consideration will be given to projects that:
Each grant recipient will be required to participate in the annual Grantee Showcase during the year their grant is active. The Grantee Showcase typically takes place in Prescott every year in September or October. Travel costs associated with attendance and participation in the Grantee Showcase are an eligible budget item (either reimbursable or used as a match toward the grant).
This year's grant theme is Planning for Trees. Proposals should fall under one or more of seven (7) project categories: information and education, planning, community and natural resources management, maintenance, demonstration projects, climate change resiliency, and assessment.
