SACRAMENTO, November 20, 2020 - The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) is welcoming volunteers with knowledge and expertise in California's veterinary, animal rescue/shelter, and animal services industries to serve on the 2021 Pet Lover's License Plate Grant Program Technical Review Committee (TRC). This committee reviews, evaluates, and makes recommendations to CDFA on proposals submitted for funding.
Grants are awarded through a competitive solicitation process, and they are designed to prevent pet overpopulation in California by providing funds for spay and neuter services to municipalities and non-profit organizations. Grant awards will range from $5,000 to $50,000 per project.
The TRC consists of representatives from government and non-government organizations. TRC members will begin work in January 2021.
All individuals interested in serving on the TRC must submit a completed TRC Application, Conflict of Interest form, and a copy of their résumé or curriculum vitae to firstname.lastname@example.org before 5 p.m. on Monday, January 4, 2021. TRC members will be required to complete a statement of economic interest (Form 700), and complete Ethics and Sexual Harassment Prevention trainings.
