The purpose of Florida's Managing Community Forests Grant Program is to provide financial assistance to local governments or Native American tribal governments to initiate or enhance local urban and community forestry programs and improve the urban environment within the state of Florida.

The US Forest Service has directed the FFS to focus on assisting communities to strengthen their urban forestry programs in the following four core areas:

1. Active involvement by community tree boards or citizen tree advisory groups.

2. Development of urban tree management plans based on current inventory data.

3. Program oversight by qualified professional staff or professional consultant.

4. Development of a tree ordinance that will enforce community tree care standards.

Addressing these four areas will involve education of citizens, local officials, and tree care professionals. Encouraging volunteer and citizen group participation in these activities is also a key to program success. Some demonstration areas to show good urban forestry practices are also helpful and will be funded to a limited extent under this grant program.

The Managing Community Forests grant is intended to help local governments start or develop urban forestry programs by establishing a clear path to creating an effective management program. As funding allows, selected communities will receive a total of three contracts over a three-year period to conduct a tree inventory, establish an urban forest master plan, and undertake a planting project to meet goals laid out in the master plan.

The state of Florida anticipates an allocation of $50,000 for fiscal year 2021, $30,000 for fiscal year 2022, and $30,000 for fiscal year 2023. Over the three-year period of this proposal, the state of Florida anticipates a total allocation of $110,000, but allocation amount for fiscal years 2020 and 2021 is contingent on availability of future federal funding opportunities. The primary purpose of this program is not beautification through tree planting, but to develop and enhance urban and community forestry programs.

Grant Opportunities will be opened at the below address at 02:00 P.M., August 21, 2020.
