Closing Date: July 15,2013.

The Secretary of Agriculture has a congressionally designated advisory council that assists the U.S. Forest Service in establishing the grant categories and recommendations of final proposals for the Forest Service to consider. This is the National Urban and Community Forestry Advisory Council (Council).The National Urban and Community Forestry Advisory Council seeks innovative (new, cutting-edge or builds upon existing studies) grant proposals for program development, study, and collaboration that will address strategies in the Ten Year Action Plan. Specifically for this Request for Proposals, the Council is considering proposals to address the following priority issues:
§  Making Urban Trees and Forests More Resilient to the Impacts of Natural Disasters and the long-term Impacts of Climate Change
§  Green Infrastructure Jobs Analysis
§  Utilizing Green Infrastructure to Manage and Mitigate Stormwater to Improve Water Quality

Organizations, local governments, tribal agencies, and partnerships are encouraged to submit proposals that will demonstrate the reach, resources, and expertise needed to address the three priority issues in ways that will lead to meaningful, replicable results across the country.Potential Innovation grantees are should work collaboratively with other organizations and entities not traditionally involved in urban and community forestry.Applicants should consider multi-year projects and other sources of funds, which may include other Federal cooperative conservation sources.While other Federal dollars or technical support may contribute to the project, they may not be used to match these Federal grant program dollars.

Available Funding:
The U.S. Forest Service anticipates that the statutory authority (Sub Title 9 of the Cooperative Forestry Assistance Act) for the Fiscal Year 2014 Urban and Community Forestry (U&CF) Program may provide, approximately $900,000 in grant funds to be awarded through the 2014 National Urban and Community Forestry Challenge Cost-Share Grant Program.
