The Urban Forest Grant (UFG) has been established to promote conservation and improvement projects that benefit Austin’s urban forest. This program is supported by the Urban Forest Replenishment Fund, which was created to mitigate the impact of tree removals. The UFG enhances the urban forest through projects associated with tree planting, education, public service announcements, award programs, disease control, inventorying, and other related efforts. Individuals, businesses, academic and private institutions, home owners associations, youth groups and non-profit organizations may apply for funding for projects that show a clear benefit to Austin’s urban forest.
