Solicitation Profile
"The New York State DEC of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is pleased to announce available Environmental Protection Fund (EPF) funding for qualifying governmental entities or not-for-profit (NFP) organizations. Grant projects must implement successful tree inventory, community forest management planning, tree planting, or tree maintenance projects in New York State to create healthy urban and community forests while enhancing the quality of life for urban residents. Projects must be implemented on non-state-owned properties in a location where they provide a public benefit. Project locations on private property (beyond the right of way) are contingent upon existing local authority. Approximately $2,300,000 is available in funding for ""Large Community Grants"" (population size of over 65,000 residents) and ""Community Grants"" (population size of less than 65,000 residents). Minimum and maximum grant amounts range between $11,000 to $75,000 for Large Community Grants, and $11,000 to $50,000 for Community Grants.

Applications must be submitted in the NYS Grants Gateway by the following due date: 2:00 P.M. March 1, 2017. Tree Planting or Tree Maintenance projects require a twenty-five percent (25%) match on the requested amount of grant funding, and Tree Inventory or Community Forest Management Plan projects are not required to provide a match. Please email all questions about this grant opportunity to: Mary Kramarchyk: mary.kramarchyk@dec.ny.gov Include “UCF Grant” in the subject line of the email.
