DES MOINES – The popular Trees for Kids grant program is now accepting applications through Friday, March 5.
Grantees can be awarded up to $2,500 to cover the cost of trees and mulch. All trees for this program must be planted on public property and involve youth education.
The following counties align with federal grant requirements and will receive first preference: Pottawattamie, Cass, Mills, Montgomery, Fremont, and Page, but all applications are welcome from across the state and grants will be awarded outside of these priority counties as well.
