Eight Colorado cities — including the state’s three most populated — will share $22.2 million from the U.S. Department of Agriculture for tree planting and other programs that increase access to green space, particularly in underserved communities.

The USDA announced the distribution of more than $1 billion for 385 projects in cities, territories and tribal lands across the country, using forestry program funding provided by the federal Inflation Reduction Act. The 2022 law was touted as the largest climate investment in U.S. history.

Colorado cities received these grants: $9 million to Colorado Springs, $5 million each to Aurora and Denver, $1 million to Monte Vista, $689,134 to Greeley, $669,073 to Wheat Ridge, $600,000 to Glenwood Springs and $230,000 to Westminster.
