Chicago Region Trees Initiative


Funding for projects to improve forest health resulting from emerald ash borer damage or prevention is available for local units of government in Illinois, including municipalities, townships, county governments, tribal governments, forest preserves, conservation districts, and park districts. Funding is provided by the Urban and Community Forestry program of the United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service through the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. The Morton Arboretum is the grant administrator. Funding for this grant program is contingent on a final agreement with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (pending).

Grant awards are available for a minimum of $3,000 and a maximum of $30,000. For all communities, a 1:1 match is required.

Projects funded through this proposal must include activities related to improving urban forest health through emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis) management or mitigation. In addition, all funded projects must include the development or enhancement of a tree protection ordinance to meet the standard set in the RFP.
