[DNR] Grant funding available for urban forestry projects

End Date: 10/9/2013End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description
Grants totaling $142,000 are available for urban forestry projects through the Department of Natural Resources Division of Forestry.

The funds, administered by the DNR’s Community and Urban Forestry program (CUF), are part of a 2013 grant from the USDA Forest Service Northeastern Area.

Municipalities, counties, and 501(c)(3) nonprofits that have not received a grant in the last two years are eligible to apply for project funds. Communities that were awarded Trees in Our Towns Key to Our Health grant funding in 2012-13 are not eligible for this funding.

Types of projects eligible for funding include purchasing and planting of trees, hiring consultants to do public tree inventories and management plans, and related education programs. A complete list of eligible funding projects is included with the grant guidelines.

CUF will host two webinars to cover new guidelines and applications, and to answer questions. Attending one of the webinars is recommended for those interested in applying. Attendees should carefully read the guidelines before the webinar.

The webinars are Oct. 18 from 2 to 3 p.m. EDT and Oct. 22 from 10 to 11 a.m. EDT. To join the webinar, go to webinar.in.gov/dnrcufgo/.

To request a copy of the grant application documents and guidelines, email urbanforestry@dnr.IN.gov.  

Grant requests must show equal match as either cash and or in-kind match. The deadline to apply is Nov. 15. Award announcement is expected January 2014.
