Wisconsin RPCs and the DNR Announce the Award of Grants to Plant Trees

In partnership with the Wisconsin DNR, East Central Wisconsin RPC, Northwest RPC, and Southeastern Wisconsin RPC, the Bay-Lake RPC is pleased to announce the total award of $122,200 to 18 Wisconsin communities and counties for projects to reduce runoff and mitigate the impacts of Emerald Ash Borer (EAB). Grant funds will support planting over 1,000 trees throughout the Wisconsin Great Lakes Basin to help reduce runoff and recover from canopy losses from EAB.

The funding was made available through two FY2018 U.S. Forest Service Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GRLI) grants received by the Bay-Lake Regional Planning Commission earlier this year. The 18 grant recipients were awarded grants ranging from $1,600 to $13,000, with grant recipients providing at least a 25% match of the total project. Grants have been awarded to city, village, and county governments to assist with tree planting projects totaling nearly $250,000.

The grant recipient in the Northwest Wisconsin Region includes the City of Superior for $13,000 to plant 225 trees.

For additional information about the WI RPCs & WDNR Great Lakes Basin Tree Planting Grant Program, contact Angela Kowalzek-Adrians, Bay-Lake Regional Planning Commission, at 920-448-2820, Ext. 106 or AngelaKA@baylakerpc.org.
