April 8 is the deadline for community groups to file notice of intent to apply for grants through the Arlington government’s Tree Canopy Fund.
Civic associations, service clubs, school groups, non-profit organizations and ad hoc groups can apply for grants of up to $7,500 to plant trees on private property or provide public information and outreach on tree stewardship.
Final applications are due July 8.
The Tree Canopy Fund was established by the County Board in 2007 and began awarding grants two years later. It is administered by Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment and the Arlington County Urban Forestry Commission.
