To help create sustainable urban forests across the state, $30.8 million in funding will be available to support urban and community forestry projects in historically disinvested urban communities throughout California.

  • Broadened community engagement in local urban forest planning, tree planting, and management activities.

  • Improved community and urban forest resilience to climate change, extreme heat, forest pests and diseases, and storm events through best management and maintenance practices.

There are six grant options available:

  1. Urban Forest Expansion and Improvement

  2. Urban Forest Management Activities

  3. Urban Forestry Education and Workforce Development

  4. Urban Forestry Regional or Statewide Impact

  5. Urban Forest Equity Capacity Building, and Green Schoolyards

Projects must directly serve priority populations within one or more defined disadvantaged and/or low-income communities in an urban area. In California, CAL FIRE’s Urban and Community Forestry Program is administering this federal grant funding.
