Grants Available for Local Land Owners Who Lost Timber from Hurricane Michael and 2019 Tornadoes

As much as $10 million in federal grant money is available to help Alabama land owners who lost trees during Hurricane Michael in 2018 and tornadoes that hit east Alabama in 2019.

The Alabama Forestry Commission says private, non-industrial timber owners can qualify for the money. The funds comes from the Agriculture Department’s Farm Service Agency.

Grants are available for people with timber in Barbour, Bullock, Coffee, Covington, Crenshaw, Dale, Escambia, Geneva, Henry, Houston, Lee, Montgomery, Pike and Russell counties.
