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.

AB 1613 appropriated funding from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund to CDFA for early and extra methane emissions reductions from dairy and livestock operations. CDFA anticipates awarding $9 to $16 million to support non-digester management practices that reduce methane emissions from dairy and livestock operations through the AlternativeManure Management Program (AMMP).


Funding Entity: 

CDFA will fund up to 100% of the total project cost with a maximum grant award of $750,000 per project. Matching funds are strongly encouraged.
