The Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission is accepting applications through July 29 for the fall planting season through the CommuniTree Community Tree Grant Program.

Applications are due July 29, 2022. Additional details are available online.    

Eligible applicants include public entities, such as municipalities; neighborhoods; schools; churches; and conservation, community, or service organizations. In most cases, trees must be planted in public spaces such as parks, schools, churches, and along public roadway easements within northwest Indiana’s Lake Michigan Watershed.

Applicants receiving trees must agree to plant properly and maintain the trees. Training will be provided, NIRPC said.  

NIRPC is a partner in CommuniTree, an initiative to plant 10,000 new trees in the Region by the end of the year.  

Funding for the CommuniTree Community Tree Grant Program is made possible through a Great Lakes Restoration Initiative grant awarded to NIRPC by the USDA Forest Service.
