LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Officials say up to $90,000 is available for urban and community forestry projects across the state.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says the grants are funded through the U.S. Forest Service’s State and Private Forestry Program. Local units of government, nonprofit organizations, schools and tribal governments are eligible for the funds.

Possible projects under the 2016-17 DNR Urban and Community Forestry Program include urban forest management and planning activities, tree planting on public property; urban forestry and arborist training; education events and materials; and Arbor Day celebrations and materials.

The deadline for applications is Sept. 16. Planned projects must be completed by Sept. 1, 2017. Details are posted online.
