SACRAMENTO, September 30, 2022 — CDFA's Farm Equity Office is seeking public input on drought-related program priorities to help inform the Request for Applications (RFA) for the 2023 California Underserved and Small Producer Grant Program (CUSP).

The current CUSP Program was formed in 2021 for COVID-19 economic relief and includes two components for eligible entities. Part 1 provides funding for technical assistance providers to support farmers and ranchers in applying for COVID-19 pandemic-related economic relief grant programs and assistance with business planning and marketing strategies and other business economic recovery activities. Part 2 supports partnering organizations to act as "regional grant administrators" to provide direct grant assistance for underserved farmers and ranchers to aid in economic recovery and drought relief measures. Link to program website for more information on the CUSP program.
