Urban Tree Challenge Fund
The UTCF is open to anyone who wants to plant trees in urban or peri-urban areas as long, as you have full management control or consent to use the land for the duration of your agreement and your planting location is within an urban area.
The fund provides up to 50% of published standard costs for planting large and small trees and their establishment costs. The remaining funding must be met through match funding, either in the form of money or labour.
Block bids allow organisations to apply for funding for multiple projects under one application, which can be geographically dispersed across England or focused in a local area. Individual applications are aimed at smaller organisations or community groups who are looking to deliver much smaller scale projects.
The Urban Tree Challenge Fund is now open for block bids and closes at midnight on 28 July 2019. Expressions of Interest (EOI) for individual applications can also be received in this window.
Full details can be found on the Government website.
