California ReLeaf Tree Planting Grants Available Now!

California ReLeaf is pleased to release our Request for Proposals for the 2016 Social Equity Tree Planting Grant Program, with up to $500,000 in funding for tree planting projects. Applications are due no later than Tuesday, January 19, 2016.

The 2016 Social Equity Tree Planting Grant Program is funded by a grant from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE), which received money in the 2014-15 State Budget from the California Climate Investments Program to support projects that combat climate change. All funded projects must reduce greenhouse gasses, and all must either be located in, or provide benefit to, disadvantaged communities as defined by CalEnviroScreen 2.0.

California ReLeaf will be hosting a webinar in mid-November that will offer further information about the Program and provide some useful tips on successfully completing the application. More details to follow via e-mail in November.
