Funding for tree planting projects
The government supported Urban Tree Challenge Fund has re-opened to applications from community and volunteer groups, town councils and individuals, for tree planting projects in cities and towns across England.
The funding is open to applications from –
- Small organisations or community groups for between £10,000 and £30,000 for smaller, focused areas of planting
- Block bids of over £250,000 with no upper limit to enable multiple projects that are either geographically dispersed or focused in one area to be submitted under one application.
The fund provides 50% of standard costs for planting and establishment. The remaining 50% must be met through match funding.
The deadline for applications is 11:59pm on the 25 July 2021. For further information see the Urban Tree Challenge Fund webpage.
