It's Time To Paint The Streets Green! TD Awarding $15,000 To Applicants Looking To Improve Their Community #TDGreenStreets

Now accepting applications for 2014 grants

TORONTO, Oct. 29, 2013 /CNW/ - From "living" walls and citizen pruner programs, to arboretums and new watering techniques, communities across Canada are developing innovative ways to manage and grow their urban forests.  But they don't have to do it alone. TD Green Streets grants provide a valuable source of funding to help bring these creative projects to life.

Communities nationwide are encouraged to apply to receive matching grants of up to $15,000. With $300,000 in grants available, Tree Canada and TD Friends of the Environment Foundation (TD FEF) are looking to support another round of innovative projects in 2014.

"We are excited to launch another year of TD Green Street funding," says Michael Rosen, President of Tree Canada.  "We look forward to working with like-minded communities that understand the benefits of trees and continue to grow better places to live."

As Tree Canada's flagship program, TD Green Streets supports and encourages innovation in urban forestry. Since its inception in 1994, Green Streets has awarded funding to more than 500 recipients, and has helped change the landscape of local communities across Canada. The program is open to all Canadian municipalities and Aboriginal communities, as well as business improvement associations (BIA).

"Each year TD Green Streets funds innovative projects that impact, and contribute to the greening of, cities and towns across Canada," says Mary Desjardins, Executive Director, TD FEF. "We are thrilled to support these projects - and hope that more communities will be inspired to explore and develop creative methods to manage their tree canopies."

The deadline to submit an application for a 2014 TD Green Streets grant is January 10, 2014 . Recipients will be announced in March 2014. Grant recipients are selected by a panel of representatives from TD Friends of the Environment Foundation (TD FEF), Tree Canada, and regional urban forest practitioners. TD Friends of the Environment Foundation has been the title sponsor of TD Green Streets since 2010.

Past TD Green Streets grant recipients include:
