TIMELY FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES

  • 2016 TreeVitalize Grant Opportunities.  The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) is pleased to announce exciting changes in the TreeVitalize grant program.  DCNR has streamlined the application and granting process and are transitioning to an annual grant round in lieu of multiple grant rounds per calendar year.  This shift will allow communities awarded funding two full planting seasons to complete their projects.  There are also two grant communities can apply for now; Planting Grants and Street Tree Inventory Grants.  Planting Grants are due September 1st and Street Tree preliminary applications are due June 1st.  For more information on the TreeVitalize Grant Program visit the TreeVitalize Website or contact Jessica Cavey, Development and Grants Coordinator (717) 599-8650 or c-jcavey@pa.gov.
  • Exelon's Environment Program supports projects that improve the quality of our environment; promote environmental education, conservation and preservation; develop cleaner sources of energy; protect endangered species; and beautify neighborhoods.  Will fund projects located within communities where they work (ie Holtwood).  For more information visit the Exelon website.
