Inflation Reduction Act Funding



Urban and Community Forestry (UCF) authorities in the Inflation Reduction Act are covered under the USDA Forest Service’s Justice40 Initiative established through Executive Order 13985. To advance the mission of Justice40, only proposals that support disadvantaged communities, as defined by the Climate and Economic Justice Screening Tool (CJEST; https://screeningtool.geoplatform.gov/en/), will be considered.

The Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management seeks to improve community forest conditions and access to disadvantaged communities, address the backlog of local community forestry work, and position Arizona’s community forests as a valuable piece of mitigating climate change impacts and urban heat. Activities aimed at prioritizing those most vulnerable by increasing tree canopy, long-term tree survival and stewardship, and career opportunities in the face of decreasing water availability, rising temperatures, and fast-paced urban development for residents will be prioritized.
