Trees are critical when it comes to our community and lifestyle. So how can we support them to make the places we live, work, and play more healthy, sustainable, and resilient?

DLNR’s Division of Forestry and Wildlife invites applicants for the U.S. Forest Service’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Grant to support forest action plan priorities in urban and community forestry.

Funding is awarded through a competitive process with emphasis on priorities including:

·   Climate change mitigation

·   Education & outreach

·   Emergency management

·   Human health & wellbeing

·   Invasive species and urban forest resilience

·   Ordinances & legislation

·   Urban tree care

·   Water quality & green infrastructure

·   Wildland urban interface

Priority will be given to proposals that address equity and environmental justice and support disadvantaged communities.

Requests can be between $10,000 to $50,000 with no match requirement. Applications are due by Sept. 30 at 5 p.m.
