TD Bank Awarding $200,000 in Grants to Tree City USA Communities through TD Green Streets
TD Green Streets supports innovative practices in urban forestry. The program will award a total of $200,000 in grants in support of local forestry projects in low- to moderate-income (LMI) neighborhoods. Funding can go towards the purchase of trees, tree planting and maintenance, education and training opportunities. The maximum amount of each grant request is $20,000. Up to 50% of the total project funding can be designated for new trees.
To be eligible for a TD Green Streets grant, municipalities must be a current (2012) Tree City USA community within TD Bank’s United States footprint. A listing of eligible communities, information, requirements, and the application can be found at tdgreenstreets.com.
In addition to extending the deadline, the list of eligible communities has been expanded.
