The Delaware Urban and Community Forestry Program is offering up to $5,000 in grants for community-based tree projects throughout the First State. The program is open to all Delaware municipalities, homeowner associations, and certified nonprofits. Applications are limited to one project in one category (tree planting or tree management), and all funds must be utilized on publicly owned land or community open space. Grant recipients must also provide a 50-50 cost-share match, which can be met through a combination of volunteer labor, donated materials and services, or cash from non-federal sources.
This year’s application deadline is March 2, 2018. Winners will be notified by April 2.
