Unfortunately, we do not have tree planting grants for 2012. We are always looking for new opportunities and partners to support the planning, planting and maintenance of community trees. If you have ideas or suggestions, please let us know.
We decided to leave the grant application supporting resources as they may help with other grant applications.
Supporting Your Grant Applications
Technical Assistance: If your community needs assistance with the grant application, or have any question regarding selecting, planting and caring for trees in your community, contact your District Urban and Community Forester.

Resources to help: Before you select your sites, choose trees and plant the trees, check out our community forestry library, there are many resources to guide you. Below are a few of interest.
VLCT Grant Workshop (PDF 94 KB) - This document is an outcome of a grant workshop put on by the Vermont League of Cities and Towns (VLCT) in 2008. It offers a list of grant opportunities in the state and a grant development checklist.
Historic Preservation Grant Opportunities (PDF 101 KB) - This document, developed by the Division of Historic Preservation, offers a very comprehensive funding directory. While the intent is for historic preservation projects, several of the opportunities would accept urban and community forestry projects.
New England Grassroots Environmental Fund - The grants range in size from $500 - $2.500. Their mission is to energize and nurture long-term civic engagement in local initiatives that create and maintain healthy, just, safe and environmentally sustainable communities.
