CDFA ANNOUNCES FUNDING FOR 2022 CAL AG PLATE GRANT PROGRAM

Español
SACRAMENTO, September 12, 2022 – The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) is accepting proposals for the 2022 California Agriculture Special Interest License Plate (CalAgPlate) grant program. This program projects an estimated $250,000 in grant funding available to promote agricultural education and leadership activities for students at the K-12, post-secondary, and adult education levels.
 
Proceeds generated through the sales of specialized, agriculture-themed license plates through the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) have made this opportunity available.
 
Funding is available on a competitive basis for state-adopted Agricultural Education Programs (Education Code Section 52450-52454), government agencies, and non-profit organizations that administer agricultural education programs. The application deadline is Friday, October 7, 2022, at 5:00 p.m. PT.
 
Prospective applicants are encouraged to visit the programs website www.cdfa.ca.gov/calagplate for detailed application instructions.
The CalAgPlate program has funded more than $1.9 million in youth educational activities since the program's inception. You can help support agricultural education and the CalAgPlate program by purchasing a special interest license plate at your local DMV office or online today.
