The Community Forest Program, a project of the USDA Forest Service, recently announced the availability of grant money for the next calendar year.
This grant program authorizes the Forest Service to provide financial assistance to local governments, Tribal governments and qualified nonprofit entities to establish community forests that provide continuing and accessible community benefits.
Proposed Administration funding for the community forest projects is $4 million. Individual grant applications may not exceed $400,000.
Applications are due to the State Forester or the appropriate Tribal official by January 15, 2014.
