Community & Urban Forestry Grants
Trees make our communities better places to live and work. Cities, towns and non-profit organizations can receive funding to enhance urban trees and forests. The Indiana DNR, Division of Forestry offers four grant programs that help improve, protect, maintain and increase the number of trees in Indiana communities. This federal and state funding is provided on an annual basis by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources and the U.S.D.A. Forest Service Grantees must match the grant with an in-kind and/or monetary match. A brief description of each program follows. Grant applications are available three months prior to the application deadline.
Grants funds are made available to Indiana communities for public tree inventories and management planning, tree planting, education and outreach materials, and other related projects depending of funding source priorities.
