The Alternative Manure Management Program (AMMP) provides financial assistance for the implementation of non-digester manure management practices in California, which will result in reduced greenhouse gas emissions. Alternative manure management practices involve handling manure in ways that don't involve using an anaerobic digester. Currently, eligible practices for funding through AMMP include: pasture-based based management; solid separation or conversion from flush to scrape in conjunction with some form of drying or composting of collected manure.
The State Water Efficiency and Enhancement Program (SWEEP) provides financial assistance in the form of grants to implement irrigation systems that reduce greenhouse gases and save water on California agricultural operations. Eligible system components include (among others) soil moisture monitoring, drip systems, switching to low pressure irrigation systems, pump retrofits, variable frequency drives and installation of renewable energy to reduce on-farm water use and energy. (Prop 68)
Authorized with the passage of Assembly Bill 109 (Ting, Budget Act of 2017, Chapter 249, Statutes of 2017) and Senate Bill 856 (Budget and Fiscal Review Committee, Chapter 30, Statutes of 2018), REAP will provide $10 million from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF) to support onsite renewable energy projects in the agriculture sector to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

This resulted in the Cultural, Community and Natural Resources (“CCNR”) Grant Program.
