The Anne Arundel County Forestry and Forested Land Protection Grant Program is now OPEN! Please visit our website for the Request for Proposals (RFP) and more information about the program: Anne Arundel County Forestry and Forested Land Protection – Chesapeake Bay Trust (

The goal of this program is to implement cost-effective reforestation and greening projects and increase the number of acres of protected forested land in the County. By increasing tree cover and expanding green areas, erosion can be reduced; water and soil quality can be improved; airborne pollutants such as particulates, nitrogen oxide, and carbon monoxide can be filtered; and summer temperatures and resulting ozone pollution and energy use can be reduced. By protecting forested land, valuable ecological services such as habitat, water quality, and flood control can be ensured for the future.

What this funds:

  • Reforestation/afforestation of Protected Lands
  • Permanent protection of Forested Lands
  • Reforestation/afforestation and Protection of Uneased and Unforested Lands

Application Deadline: January 3, 2024 at 4PM EST
