New Funding Available to Battle Emerald Ash Borer

A new funding opportunity as been announced aimed at helping communities mitigate the impacts of Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) and prepare them for invasion by diversifying their urban and community forests. The funding will help municipalities, counties and tribes to plant non-host trees. Four to 80 projects, ranging from $1,000 to $20,000, are expected to be funded under this program. Eligible communities include those within the Wisconsin Great Lakes Basin and within an EAB-quarantined county. The funding is made available through a FY2015 U.S. Forest Service Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GRLI) grant received by the Bay-Lake Regional Planning Commission earlier this year. Applications are due Aug. 17, 2016. For additional information visit or contact Angela Kowalzek-Adrians at [email protected]
