The NCFS Urban & Community Forestry (U&CF) Grant Program provides cost-share grants to North Carolina governments, public educational institutions and organizations for U&CF projects located within the boundaries of a North Carolina incorporated municipality. Each year, Requests for Proposals are accepted, and projects of merit that meet the goals and objectives of the program are awarded grants as funding is available. Funding for the program is provided by USDA Forest Service as authorized by the Cooperative Forestry Assistance Act of 1978 (P.L. 95-313).
