Urban and Community Forestry Funding Opportunity Info Session
March 29 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
In early April, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service will announce a Notice of Funding Opportunity for the Urban and Community Forestry Program. Under the Inflation Reduction Act, the Urban and Community Forestry Program received a historic $1.5 billion to support urban tree-planting, urban forest planning and management, and related activities, particularly in disadvantaged communities. You are invited to a briefing on Wednesday, March 29 at 3:00pm ET to learn more about the upcoming funding opportunity and how to apply.
The Urban and Community Forestry program now has a wider range of eligible recipients for this IRA funding opportunity, such as: local and state governments; agencies or governmental entities for Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, Northern Mariana Islands, Federal States of Micronesia, Marshall Islands, Palau, Virgin Islands, the District of Columbia or insular areas; Federally Recognized Tribes, Alaska Native Corporations/villages, and Tribal organizations; Nonprofit organizations; Public and State-controlled institutions of higher education; and community-based organizations.
