CDFA NOW ACCEPTING SUGGESTIONS FOR NEW MANAGEMENT PRACTICES FOR ALTERNATIVE MANURE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
CDFA
Release #18-034

SACRAMENTO, May 30, 2018 The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) Office of Environmental Farming and Innovation is now accepting new dairy and livestock manure management practices for consideration in the Alternative Manure Management Program (AMMP). The goal of this effort is to improve program effectiveness and increase stakeholder engagement.

Funded by California Climate Investments, AMMP provides financial assistance for the implementation of non-digester manure management practices in California, resulting in reduced greenhouse gas emissions.  Accordingly, all new practices must achieve methane emission reductions at California dairy and livestock operations through non-digester management practices.

Submission requirements, the process for inclusion, and additional details can be found at: www.cdfa.ca.gov/oefi/AMMP. All submissions are due by 5:00 P.M. PDT on June 28, 2018 and must be submitted to cdfa.oefi@cdfa.ca.gov.



The AMMP is part of California Climate Investments, a statewide program that puts billions of Cap
and Trade dollars to work reducing GHG emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment particularly in disadvantaged communities.  The Cap-and-Trade program also creates a financial incentive for industries to invest in clean technologies and develop innovative ways to reduce pollution.  California Climate Investments projects include affordable housing, renewable energy, public transportation, zero-emission vehicles, environmental restoration, sustainable agriculture, recycling, and much more.  At least 35 percent of these investments are located within and benefiting residents of disadvantaged communities, low-income communities, and low-income households across California.  For more information, visit the California Climate Investments website at:
