Assessing the Impact of Urban and Community Forestry Federal Grants - Summary
To demonstrate the value of NUCFAC- recommended grants, the USFS supported an assessment of twenty-six grants, awarded during the years 2010-2015. The following summary report includes results from this assessment.
The National Urban and Community Forestry Advisory Council (NUCFAC) advises the Secretary of Agriculture on matters relating to the protection, planting, and care of trees and forests in our nation’s cities and communities. Since 1994, NUCFAC annually recommends urban and community forestry projects for funding to the USDA Forest Service (USFS). Recommended projects meet objectives outlined in the current National Urban and Community Forestry (UCF) Action Plan, which is used to expand awareness of the benefits that urban and community forests provide to urban areas.
