Thanks to funding from the USDA Forest Service, the South Carolina Forestry Commission Urban and Community Forestry Program will be offering funding for SC municipalities and counties to create urban forest management plans, maps, inventories and tools. The SCFC's webinar will describe a new process and priorities for its grants program for communities. As part of the South Carolina Forestry Commission 2021 Forest Action Plan, SCFC established the goal of providing technical, educational and financial assistance in urban and community forestry to local governments living and working within established developing and populated areas. Local governments who are interested in applying for funds are strongly encouraged to attend this webinar as there is a new process for funding applications and new technical support available! The webinar is free and there will be opportunities to post questions to presenters.​
