Request for Proposals for the 2021 Treecovery Grant Program

The 2021 Treecovery Grant Program is funded by a grant from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE), which received money in the 2018-2019 State Budget from the California Climate Investments Program to support projects that combat climate change. The program is similar to California ReLeaf’s Social Equity Urban Forest Grant Program, but places more emphasis on supporting staff, community rebuilding, and vulnerable populations.

All funded projects must reduce greenhouse gasses. While significant focus will be on supporting projects located in disadvantaged and low-income communities, 20% of the funds will be open to state-wide competition in all communities. 2021 Grant Proposals are now due by Sunday, June 20, 2021.
