FundingCurrently there are no specific funds for local EAB issues. However, there are general Urban Forestry grants for municipalities and communities from the DEC. While not specific to EAB, they can be used for things such as inventory, tree planting, and tree maintenance. Urban and Community Forestry Cost Share grant information can be found at http://www.dec.ny.gov/lands/5285.html.
Check with your county or local municipality to see if they are able to support EAB planning and management efforts near you.
