Massachusetts communities can beat the heat with the FY25 Cool Corridors Tree Planting Grant opportunity offered by The Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EOEEA) that supports community based tree-planting initiatives.

The program targets reducing temperatures and saving energy costs by adding plantings within neighborhood walking routes, specifically near schools, daycare facilities, transit stops, elderly care facilities & medical facilities.

This reimbursement grant ranges from a minimum eligible project expense of $30,000 to a maximum of $150,000 for a single project.

Eligible applicants are encouraged to consider opportunities to partner, leveraging the unique abilities of each to achieve the greatest impact on mitigating urban heat while ensuring the watering and care of shade trees planted for a two-year period with a focus on the principles of the “right tree, right place” concept. 

Applications are due by 4 p.m. on Friday, August 2, 2024.
