Delaware’s Urban and Community Forestry Program offers an annual matching grant program to increase tree canopy and promote the benefits of trees throughout the First State. Since its inception, the grant program has awarded 577 grants totaling more than $1.79 million resulting in the planting of more than 14,000 trees.
An interactive dashboard now shows the history of the program with locations and dates of grant projects: http://de.gov/treegrantdashboard.
The comprehensive database can list charts of the grants by year, county, and legislative district. The map to the right of the dashboard also allows viewers to zoom in to various parts of the state and then view specific projects by clicking on the blue dot.
