In an attempt to reach the Million Trees Miami goal of one million trees planted by 2020 and a 30 percent tree canopy, Neat Streets Miami is pleased to announce the Street Trees Matching Grant program, now in its second year. Funded by Miami-Dade County, this grant engages municipalities, non-profits and community organizations in planting native or Florida-friendly trees on Miami-Dade's corridors and gateways.
The goal of this program is to leverage the County's street tree program by encouraging investments on county or local streets.
Grants of $5,000 to $25,000 will be awarded to those communities who can demonstrate the greatest benefits for residents, employers and visitors and are able to provide a stewardship plan for our joint investment.
Eligible candidates include municipalities, non-profits, & community organizations.
Preference will be given to areas with low-to-moderate income populations and/or with 20 percent or less tree canopy.
Grant applications will be evaluated using the following criteria:
