Sample Letter to Congressional Leaders
The current Federal Administration has indicated a severe reduction in funding for Urban & Community Forestry budgets nationwide for the upcoming fiscal year. TreePennsylvania’s current Federal funding provides resources not only for vital programs, but the most basic of services – from adhering to requirements to maintain our 501(c)3 status, to answering phones, and picking up the mail! In addition, our partners at the Penn State Extension Urban Forestry program depend on Federal funding to maintain essential staff.
Without this funding, our ability to provide educational workshops, one-on-one consultations with municipalities, inventory research, and grant administration will no longer exist.
We’ve developed a sample letter for Congressional leaders highlighting the importance of urban and community forestry throughout the Commonwealth. Contact PA’s Senators and Congressional Representatives to share the importance of TreePennsylvania in your communities.
