About

The NYSUFC offers two kinds of grants for New York State communities: Quick Start and Tree City USA Reward. Follow the Council blog or subscribe to the monthly Taking Root e-news for heads-up on the next round of each grant. See the blog for many posts about grant-funded events.

TREE CITY USA Reward Grants

The intent of this grant is to encourage municipalities to sustain their community forestry program and maintain their status as a Tree City USA through a celebratory tree planting in which large specimen trees or a grove of trees are planted in a prominent location within the community. The grants are made possible by a combination of U.S. Forest Service grant funds and unrestricted NYSUFC funds; applicants are sought in spring and/or fall and must have been a Tree City USA for at least the past five years.

Quick Start Grants

Through U.S. Forest Service funding, the NYSUFC offers Quick Start competitive grants of up to $1,000 each to small communities who want to pursue Tree City USA status, starting with an inaugural Arbor Day tree planting celebration in spring or fall.
