Street Trees Matching Grant

In an attempt to reach the Million Trees Miami goal of 1 million trees planted by 2020 and a 30 percent tree canopy, we're pleased to announce the second year of the Street Trees Matching Grant program. Funded by Miami-Dade County, this grant engages municipalities, non-profits and community organizations in planting native or Florida-friendly trees on Miami-Dade's corridors and gateways.

The goal of this program is to leverage the County's street tree program by encouraging investments on county or local streets.

Grants of $5,000 to $25,000 will be awarded to those communities who can demonstrate the greatest benefits for residents, employers and visitors and are able to provide a stewardship plan for our joint investment.

Eligible candidates include municipalities, non-profits, & community organizations. Grant applications will be evaluated using the following criteria:

  • existing tree canopy
  • income level
  • match
  • education/outreach component
  • impact
  • ability to implement
  • maintenance

Preference will be given to areas with low-to-moderate income populations and/or with 20 percent or less tree canopy.
