Orange County, Florida

Orange County Residential Native Landscape Grants

The Florida Native Plant Society‚Äôs (FNPS) mission is to promote the preservation, conservation and restoration of the native plants and native plant communities of Florida. The benefits of native wildflowers and plants are becoming better known especially in their role in supporting native crop pollinators, decreasing air and water pollution, providing wildlife habitat, and in general, creating a better environment for all Floridians.  Therefore, the Tarflower Chapter of FNPS provides a grant opportunity to residents of Orange County to install, enhance or restore a native landscape.

Applications were reviewed by a panel of Tarflower Officers and awards given based on best outcome of the project. Multiple awards were given of up to $500.  Awardees will receive a gift certificate [soon] for Green Isle Gardens Nursery for the purchase of plants.

Grant proposals required: Name, address, short narrative with 'before' photo describing the project, its expected results, and a completion timeline. Submission of photos after installation is complete and permission to use the before and after photos in the Tarpaper eNewsletter is required, too.

Application submission has closed for the 2023 year. Updates on the 2024 grant cycle will be in the Tarpaper eNewsletter, on Tarflower's social media pages, and this webpage.
