Project Period

The optimum tree/landscape material planting season is November – April each year. The City will require all tree planting activities to occur during this time frame. If your proposal is selected for an award, please be prepared to start the project as soon as possible. 

 

Partnership Match Amounts

The City of Roswell agrees to match the partner’s cash and in-kind donations 50:50. Typically the City will match the partner’s donations ranging from a low of $500 to a high of $5,000. The City will accept creative match arrangements provided the partner provides a combination of cash, community donor support and in-kind volunteer labor. Thus, the City’s cash match will generally range from 50-75% of the total project costs.
