Greener Towns Program

Ready to change your community? We want to help. The Greener Towns program provides $1,000-$20,000 to make meaningful landscape projects for better quality of life. A Greener Town is defined by its commitment to foster vibrant places, healthy people and a resilient environment by planting:

  • Interactive, people-oriented places
  • Trees and gardens that thrive on less water and energy
  • Diverse habitat for wildlife and beneficial insects
