The Delaware Forest Service’s Urban and Community Grant Program is providing more than $31,000 to fund nine community tree projects in all three counties. The program offers up to $5,000 in competitive matching grants for projects on public land and community open space, with grants available to all municipalities, homeowner associations, and nonprofit organizations in the First State. Successful applications were awarded by a committee of the Delaware Community Forestry Council. Since it began, Delaware’s urban and community forestry grant program has given over 575 grants totaling more than $1.75 million and planted more than 13,000 trees.
