Alternative Manure Management Program (AMMP)


2017 Alternative Manure Management Program

CDFA’s 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 $50 million from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund in 2016 for methane emissions reductions from dairy and livestock operations. CDFA allocated $9.6 million from the total $50 million appropriation as incentives to support non-digester practices on California dairy and livestock operations. The remaining $35.2 million was awarded to incentivize digester projects through the Dairy Digester Research and Development (DDRDP).
