The Trees for Tribs Grant Program supports efforts to reforest New York's tributaries, or small creeks and streams, which flow into and feed larger rivers and lakes. The goal of the program is to support communities in planting young trees and shrubs along stream corridors, also known as riparian areas, to prevent erosion, increase flood water retention, improve wildlife and stream habitat, as well as protect water quality. Approximately $525,000 in grant funding from the New York State Environmental Protection Fund, administered by Department of Environmental Conservation's Division of Lands and Forests, is available for eligible projects in the Great Lakes Priority, Mohawk Priority, and Statewide Priority watersheds.
Applications must be submitted by September 7, 2018.
