Deadline for Community Forest grants

October 11, 2023 @ 2:00 pm

Community Forest Conservation Grant Program; deadline is Oct. 11

The Community Forest Conservation Grant program will accept applications until 2 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 11.

This grant opportunity aims to provide municipalities with financial assistance in purchasing forest land for the purpose of creating community forests. Community forests can provide many benefits, including:

  • Wildlife habitat
  • Flood mitigation
  • Recreational opportunities
  • Boosting mental health
  • Improving air and water quality

In addition, community forests help meet the state’s net-zero greenhouse gas emissions goals outlined in New York’s Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act.
