COLLEGE STATION — Texas A&M Forest Service is soliciting applications for a pair of $50,000 grants to promote healthy trees and forests. The agency’s Community Forestry Grants Program seeks to fund community forestry-focused projects in two areas: climate resiliency and community equity. To be eligible, applicants must be public or non-profit organizations and can include state and local government agencies, educational institutions, non-government organizations and public utility districts. Individuals, businesses and federal agencies are not eligible. Proposals that complement existing initiatives that address issues facing community forests in Texas are encouraged. The deadline to apply is Feb. 15. Organizations can apply for both grants, but only one will be awarded per entity. Gretchen Riley, Texas A&M Forest Service Forest Systems Department Head, said the scope of the proposals can be varied and far-reaching.
