Project Funding
Grants available through Trees Forever can be accessed here. Those in Illinois that will open soon include:

Illinois Community Canopy: Tree Inventories
Fund the completion of a tree inventory and management plan that will guide your town to maintain and expand its canopy and help you address issues discovered during the inventory. Completing an inventory/management plan would earn a community the opportunity for another tree planting grant.

Illinois Community Canopy: Tree Removal
Eligible communities can apply for these competitive grants to pay for tree removal of dead, dying, or damaged trees by a certified professional.  Communities can then be eligible for a tree planting grant to replace trees that are removed.

Information on IRA-funded grants is expected soon.

Other Community Resources
Trees Forever also maintains a Community Project Funding Guide that includes an overview of potential funding resources available for community enhancement projects.

Most of the funding programs, guidelines and deadlines listed in this guide are not established by Trees Forever and may be subject to change. For up-to-date information or questions regarding a specific program they encourage potential applicants to contact the appropriate organization or agency.
