The Urban Tree Challenge Fund has re-opened to applications from community and volunteer groups as well as Town Councils and individuals for tree planting projects in cities and towns across England.
This third round of funding is open to applications from:
- small organisations or community groups for between £10,000 and £30,000 for smaller, focused areas of planting;
- block bids of over £250,000 with no upper limit to enable multiple projects that are either geographically dispersed or focused in one area to be submitted under one application.
The fund provides 50% of standard costs for planting and establishment. The remaining 50% must be met through match funding.
The deadline for applications is 11:59pm on the 25th July 2021.
