CalFire Urban and Community Forestry has released the Guidelines and the Request for Proposals for their Cap-and-Trade Grant Program. Concept Proposals are due November 13, 2014.
Register for the September 24th Webinar 1:00 - 3:00 PM for a complete overview and further information.
CAL FIRE offers these grants to eligible applicants on an annual basis as funding permits. Funding for the grant programs varies from year to year and is based on the availability of Proposition-based bonds, Federal Grants from the USDA Forest Service, State General Funds, and approval of Budgets for each fiscal year. The grants are designed to create or implement projects that benefit urban forestry and urban greening efforts and will vary each year, so it is imperative that the applicant reads the description of each grant to determine whether the proposed project meets the stated conditions.

NUCFAC GRANT INFORMATION
The National Urban and Community Forestry Advisory Council (Council) serves to advise the Secretary of Agriculture on the status of the nation's urban and community forests. The Council seeks to establish sustainable urban and community forests, by encouraging communities of all sizes to manage and protect their natural resources. Well managed urban forests provide critical environmental services that can improve the public's health, and well being; economic viability and restore functioning environmental systems for people today and future generations.
Through the U.S. Forest Service's Urban and Community Forestry competitive Challenge Cost-Share Grant Program, the Council only supports urban and community forestry projects that have national or multi-state, significance in their impact or application.
