The Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is accepting grant proposals until June 17 for community tree-planting projects. The 2022 DTE Energy Foundation partnership grant program is for projects that reduce the effects of climate change and bring natural beauty and the benefits of trees to community streets and public spaces in DTE Energy’s service area.
The DTE Foundation, DNR, and nonprofit ReLeaf Michigan continue a legacy of tree planting in Michigan communities through the annual grant program. This year, a total of $100,000 is available in 1-to-1 matching grants of up to $4,000. Grant awards will be announced in August, and projects must be completed by May 31, 2023.
