Opportunity USDA-FS-2009: The National Urban and Community Forestry Advisory Council (Council) serves to advise the Secretary of Agriculture on the status of the nation's urban and community forests. The Council seeks to establish sustainable urban and community forests, by encouraging communities of all sizes to manage and protect their natural resources. Well managed urban forests provide critical environmental services that can improve the public's health, and well being; economic viability and restore functioning environmental systems for people today and future generations. This year the National Urban and Community Forestry Advisory Council revised its grant categories and process to the Forest Service's National Urban and Community Forestry Challenge Cost Share Grant Program. The funds will be divided into two categories of: Innovation and Best Practices Innovation Grants: The Council anticipates awarding one or more grants out of the $500,000 available. Priority areas for these grants include: energy conservation, climate change and public health. The Innovation Grants will require a pr-proposal. Best Practices Grants: will award a maximum of $50,000 per application from $500,000 available. This category addresses improvements to existing urban forestry related best practices or developing a needed best practices related to urban forestry activities. The priorities for these smaller grants are listed on page 5. Only a Full Proposal will be required for these grants. Through the U.S. Forest Service's Urban and Community Forestry competitive Challenge Cost-Share Grant Program, the Council only supports urban and community forestry projects that have national or multi-state, significance in their impact or application. The U.S. Forest Service derives the authority for the National Urban and Community Forestry Challenge Cost Share Grant Program from the Cooperative Forestry Assistance Act (Section 9). Funds are to support urban and community forestry projects that have a national or widespread impact and application. All awards are based on the availability of funding, which may be subject to change.
