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.

The objectives of the HSP are to build soil organic carbon and reduce atmospheric GHGs by (1)
providing financial incentives to California growers and ranchers for agricultural management
practices that sequester carbon, reduce atmospheric GHGs and improve soil health, (2) funding onfarm
demonstration projects that showcase conservation management practices that mitigate GHG
emissions and increase soil health, and (3) creating a platform promoting widespread adoption of
conservation management practices throughout the state.
