"These grants help increase the number of properly planted trees in our communities," said Kevin Sayers, Urban and Community Forestry (UCF) program coordinator. "Trees improve both the environment and quality of life in the neighborhoods where they grow."
Eligible applicants include local units of government, nonprofit organizations, tribes and schools that:
- are located within the service territory of DTE Energy’s utility subsidiaries Detroit Edison and MichCon; and
- have not received a grant during the previous year’s DTE Energy Foundation grant cycle.
Grant applications must be received by Jan. 31, 2013, at the address below. Award announcements are anticipated during March for projects that must be completed by Dec. 31, 2013.
