Cleveland Tree Coalition August 23′ Application Now Open

The Cleveland Tree Coalition is excited to share the 2023 CTC grant cycle application. This grant is open to local non-profit and public organizations for tree planting and establishment within the City of Cleveland. Organizations are eligible to apply for up to $75,000 for planting, maintenance, and community free tree giveaways.

This grant was made possible through funding provided by NOPEC’s Energized Community Grant program, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, and the CTC’s federal earmark from Senator Sherrod Brown. NOPEC, ODNR, and Senator Brown are proud to support the CTC’s critical mission of reforesting the “Forest City” through ongoing planting and maintenance initiatives.

The application and related materials are attached at the bottom of this post. Once completed, please email the application to Director Samira Malone at for consideration. Applications must be submitted no later than 5:00 PM on August 25th.

Through August, the CTC will offer 30-minute technical assistance sessions to groups interested in applying. These will be held on August 2nd, 8th, 16th, and 23rd between 1p-4p. To schedule a session, please email Thomas Vodrey at and cc Samira Malone at

We invite you to share this opportunity with your networks.
