Healthy Soils Program: Incentives Program

The California Department of Agriculture (CDFA) is pleased to announce, in coordination with the
California Air Resources Board (CARB), a competitive grant process for the 2017 Healthy Soils
Program (HSP) Incentives Program.

The HSP Incentives Program will provide up to $3.75 million in financial incentives to California
growers and ranchers for implementation of agricultural management practices that sequester carbon,
reduce atmospheric GHGs, and improve soil health.

Alternative Manure Management Program (AMMP)

The California Department of Food and Agriculture's (CDFA) 2017 Alternative Manure Management
Program (AMMP) awards competitive grants to California dairy and livestock operations for technologies
and specific management practices that result in long-term methane emission reductions and maximize
environmental benefits.

The 2017 AMMP will support the adoption of alternative (non-digester) manure management practices on California dairy and livestock operations that result in permanent, annual, and measurable GHG emission reductions.

Transformative Climate Communities

The Transformative Climate Communities (TCC) Program is a California Climate Investment (CCI) program administered by the Strategic Growth Council, and implemented by the Department of Conservation and other partnering State agencies. Funds are available to support projects that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through the development and implementation of neighborhood-level transformative climate community plans that include multiple, coordinated GHG emissions reduction projects that provide local economic, environmental, and health benefits to disadvantaged communities. Funding for the TCC Program is provided by Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF), an account established to receive Cap-and-Trade auction proceeds. (DUE 10-30-2018)
