Grant announcement for SC Urban and Community Forestry funding for urban forest plans, maps, inventories and tools
Thanks to funding from the USDA Forest Service, the South Carolina Forestry Commission Urban and Community Forestry Program is offering funding for SC municipalities and counties to create urban forest management plans, maps, inventories, and tools. Local governments are eligible to apply for technical assistance and/or funding to increase capacity in their urban and community forestry programs. The first step in the grant application process is for municipal or county staff to complete the online community forestry self-assessment tool in the link below. As part of the South Carolina Forestry Commission 2021 Forest Action Plan, SCFC established the goal of providing technical, educational, and financial assistance in urban and community forestry planning to local governments.
