2011 National Urban and Community Forestry Challenge Cost Share Grant Program

The Secretary of Agriculture has a congressionally
designated advisory Council that assists the U.S. Forest Service in
establishing the grant categories and recommending the final proposals
for the Forest Service to consider. This is the National Urban and
Community Forestry Advisory Council (Council). The Council serves to
advise the Secretary of Agriculture on the status of the nation’s urban
and community forests and related natural resources. The Council seeks to
establish sustainable urban and community forests, by encouraging
communities of all sizes to manage and protect their natural resources,
which can, if well managed, improve the public’s health, well being, and
economic vitality, and create resilient ecosystems for present and future
generations.
