NOTE: The name has been changed from the RI America the Beautiful (ATB) Grant Program to the Urban and Community Forestry Grant Program.
Federal support to the RI Urban and Community Forestry Program is authorized by the Cooperative Forestry Assistance Act of 1978 (P.L. 95-313) as amended. The program operates as a cooperative partnership between RIDEM Division of Forest Environment and USDA Forest Service, Eastern Region.
The Urban and Community Forestry Grant Program funds projects which lead to a more effective and efficient management of urban and community forests and improve public understanding of the benefits of preserving existing tree cover in communities.
As part of the 2020 Rhode Island Forest Action Plan the following goals were established as the focus of the RI Urban and Community Forestry Program. Grant projects should be developed address at least one of these goals.
- Promote active and sustainable management to conserve trees and forests where people live, work and play.
- Protect trees and forests from threats through planning and response (invasive, catastrophic, climate, etc.).
- Enhance the public benefits from trees and forests through improved management practices.
