California ReLeaf has released a Request for Proposals for the 2019 Social Equity Forest Improvement Grant Program, with $300,000 in funding for tree planting projects across California. Applications are due no later than Sunday, October 13, 2019.
The 2019 Social Equity Forest Improvement Grant Program is funded by a grant from the California
Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE), which received money in the 2017‐18 State Budget from the California Climate Investments Program to support projects that combat climate change. All funded projects must reduce greenhouse gasses, with emphasis on maximizing opportunities to maintain newly planted trees.
