SACRAMENTO, February 2, 2023 — The California Department of Food and Agriculture's (CDFA) Office of Environmental Farming and Innovation (OEFI) announces the award of $13.2 million in grants for 103 applications throughout the state through the Conservation Agriculture Planning Grants Program (CAPGP).

CAPGP was established by the Budget Act of 2021 (Senate Bill 170, Skinner) which appropriated $17 million to CDFA. With this funding, CAPGP will provide up to $14.7 million to eligible applicants for the development of conservation agriculture plans. The remainder will be used for research and technical assistance.

CAPGP will fund the development of various types of agricultural conservation plans related to CDFA Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) programs, which address risks that climate change poses to agriculture, including but not limited to drought, uncertain water availability, increased temperatures, and increased pest pressures.
