SACRAMENTO, September 21, 2022 - The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) is continuing to accept applications for the 2023 Specialty Crop Block Grant Program (SCBGP) Technical Review Committee (TRC) through 5:00 p.m. Friday, September 28, 2022.

The TRC plays a vital role in the SCBGP and is comprised of volunteers with knowledge and expertise regarding California’s specialty crop industry. The committee reviews, evaluates, and makes recommendations to CDFA on proposals submitted for funding to California’s SCBGP.

TRC members are responsible for reviewing and providing feedback on 6 to 15 proposals and attending two meetings, held virtually, to discuss final proposal scoring with fellow TRC members. TRC members gain firsthand insight into the SCBGP selection process and help prioritize SCBGP funding to ensure that it aligns with the needs of the California specialty crop industry.

Interested individuals must submit a completed application form and a copy of their résumé/CV to grants@cdfa.ca.gov before 5:00 p.m. on Friday, September 28, 2022. Please reference the first page of the application form for requirements and restrictions.
