The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is encouraging cities, villages, towns, counties, tribes and 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations to apply for a 2023 DNR Urban Forestry Grant.
The grants range from $1,000 to $25,000, and grant recipients must match each grant dollar for dollar. A startup grant of up to $5,000 is available for communities that want to start or restart a community forestry program. The DNR will award grants to projects that align with state and national goals for increasing the urban forest canopy and the benefits it provides.
You can submit applications starting July 1, 2022 until Oct. 3, 2022. To view the application and apply, visit the Urban Forestry Grant’s website.
If you have questions regarding application process and eligible projects, please contact your DNR Urban Forestry Coordinator.
