The Urban Forest Grant (UFG) was created to support tree stewardship projects across Austin that support the urban forest ecosystem, and strengthen community connections to nature and each other.
The Grant program enhances the community's urban forest ecosystem through projects associated with:
tree planting and care,
education, public service announcements, award programs,
invasive species and disease control, and
other related efforts.
