In an impressive display of collaboration, Beyond Housing has joined forces with the Missouri Department of Conservation’s Community Forestry Cost Share Program and municipal partners in the 24:1 Community to secure crucial funding for tree-related projects. Municipalities including Bel-Nor, Bel-Ridge, Hanley Hills, Normandy, Northwoods, Pagedale, Velda Village Hills, and Wellston are set to benefit from this initiative, aiming to address various aspects of tree management.
With support from the Missouri Department of Conservation’s Community Forestry Cost Share Program, Beyond Housing has successfully obtained funding that will make a significant impact on the 24:1 Community. The financial assistance will be allocated to initiatives such as mitigating hazardous trees, planting new trees, and acquiring essential equipment for public works dedicated to tree-related projects.
This funding is expected to play a pivotal role in enhancing the overall well-being of the community. These initiatives will help Beyond Housing capitalize on the numerous benefits that trees bring, including purifying the air, slowing stormwater, shading houses, and contributing to the aesthetic appeal of the communities.
Beyond Housing appreciates the support of the Missouri Department of Conservation and municipal partners in fostering a healthier and more vibrant environment for everyone in the 24:1 Community. This initiative stands as a testament to the positive outcomes achievable through effective cooperation and shared commitment to community well-being.
