NYC Green Fund Treetops Grant Program

The NYC Green Fund Treetops Grant Program provides funding for mid-size organizations that program, steward, and advocate for parks and open spaces across NYC’s five boroughs, and supports a range of projects, including open space stewardship, environmental action, organizational development, health and wellness, youth engagement, and live arts and culture. This is for organizations with budgets between $175,000 - 2,500,000. Grants are up to $50,000 and are a percentage of your organizational budget. You can submit joint applications - in that case both organizational budgets are combined. If you have been funded previously by City Parks Foundation (since 2020) you are eligible for two years of funding.

For smaller organizations under $175,000, there is the Green Fund Grassroots program. They just made their first round of grants but anticipate their next deadline to be in the spring of 2024 – so keep an eye out for that. Arts & Democracy applied in the first round with Casa Cultural and received two years of funding for work at the Ave C Plaza and Flatbush Open Streets!

The application deadline is November 7, 2023 at 11:59 PM ET. Applications and reports must be submitted through the City Parks Foundation’s online grants management system. The application is available for submission here and may be previewed here.

Applicants will be notified in December 2023/ January 2024, and the grant period will commence in January 2024. One- and two-year grant recipients are required to submit an interim report halfway through the grant period, and a final report will be required within one month of the grant period completion.
