MADISON, Wis. – The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) today announced Urban Forestry Grant Program recipients for the 2024 grant year. The program helps fund projects consistent with state and national goals for increasing the urban forest canopy. The Urban Forestry Grant Program is distributing almost $805,000 in grant funds, with $554,680 in state funding and an additional $250,066 in federal funding. A dollar-for-dollar match puts the estimated cost of these projects over $1.6 million. In total, 58 applications were selected for funding, with awards ranging from $1,580 to $25,000. Seven additional applicants may also receive funding in a second round in spring 2024 if funds reserved for the Catastrophic Storm Grant Program are not needed through the winter months. Two types of competitive grants were available for this application cycle: regular and startup.
