Applications are now being accepted for the TD Green Space Grants program, a collaboration of TD Bank Group and the Arbor Day Foundation aimed at supporting vibrant, sustainable, and healthy North American cities through the strategic development and enhancement of green spaces and natural areas.
TD Green Space Grants will offer North American municipalities in support of creative programs and projects that use green infrastructure development, tree planting, forestry stewardship, and community green space expansion as a way to advance environmental and economic benefits toward a low-carbon economy. The 2021 theme for the program is, “Building Resilience: Green infrastructure solutions for communities disproportionally impacted by Covid-19. (Defining communities disproportionately impacted as: seniors, low-income families and individuals, Black, Indigenous and racialized communities, and individuals experiencing homelessness.)
To be eligible for a TD Green Space Grant, your project must take place within TD’s footprint in the United States or Canada, with priority being given to projects in areas that primarily serve low- to moderate-income residents or take place in underserved communities.
This is a reimbursement grant — funds will be provided upon completion of your project and submission of your final report. No more than 50% of the proposed funding may be used to purchase new trees.
For communities applying within the U.S. preference will be given to currently recognized Tree City USA communities or those interested in becoming a Tree City USA community over the next calendar year.
Grant applications will be accepted until December 18th, 2020. Learn more at TDGreenSpaceGrants.com
