Do your streets need some green? 

Applications are now being accepted for the Street Tree Matching Grant where grantees can receive up to $50,000.

The Street Tree Matching Grant is funded by Miami-Dade County and engages municipalities, non-profits and community organizations in planting native or Florida-friendly trees. Applicants are encouraged to consider comprehensive approach to tree planting that includes maintenance and outreach plans.

Grant applications are evaluated with the following:

  • Preference will be given to areas with low-to-moderate income populations and/or with 20 percent or less tree canopy
  • Impact (diversity of tree species, number of trees)
  • Maintenance Plan (short-term and long-term)
  • Enhancements (such as shading a bus stop or a gateway feature)
  • Ability to implement project by deadline
  • Match (availability of funds)
  • Community outreach component (plan to engage public for approval of project; social media plan)
  • Entering into Interlocal Agreement for periodic reporting of tree planting by January 31, 2019

This grant aims to help the Million Trees Miami campaign, which is a community-wide effort to plant one million trees by 2020 in order to achieve a 30 percent tree canopy cover for Miami-Dade County.

Submission deadline is Nov. 15. For more information, call 305-755-7849 or email greenup@miamidade.gov
