Alternative Manure Management Program (AMMP)


The California Department of Food and Agriculture’s (CDFA) Alternative Manure Management Program (AMMP) provides financial assistance for the implementation of non-digester manure management practices in California, which will result in reduced greenhouse gas emissions. CDFA received $99 million from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund in 2017 and plans to allocate between $19-$33 million for AMMP and $61-$75 million for DDRDP in 2018.

CDFA is now accepting applications for 2018 AMMP Applications
