National Urban and Community Forestry Advisory Council (NUCFAC) Grant Request for Proposals Deadline: July 15


July 15, 2013 — 11:59 p.m. (EST) application deadline.

The National Urban and Community Forestry Advisory Council (NUCFAC) is an appointed advisory council to the Secretary of Agriculture on urban forestry and related issues. The 1990 Farm Bill created NUCFAC to bring together the wide variety of voices raised about a common concern: the present health and future preservation of America's urban forests. NUCFAC was founded to synthesize the full spectrum of views into a consistent vision, as a foundation for practical policy on urban forestry.

The NUCFAC announces the posting of the U.S. Forest Service FY 2014 Urban and Community Forestry Challenge Cost Share grant program. This year, there are three grant categories:

  • Making Urban Trees and Forests More Resilient to the Impacts of Natural Disasters and the Long-term Impacts of Climate Change
  • Green Infrastructure Jobs Analysis
  • Utilizing Green Infrastructure to Manage and Mitigate Stormwater to Improve Water Quality
