Funding Allocation Guideline
To ensure equitable allocation of funding among all Treesilience program participants, no single property will receive funding greater than 5% of the total operating budget for each Treesilience program year. Households that require more than this maximum amount will be considered by Treesilience coordinating partners on a case by case basis. Additionally, if tree work on a specific property will surpass equitable allocation of resources, cost-share/subsidizing of tree work is an option
