Alternative Manure Management Program

Alternative Manure Management Program (AMMP)

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 will allocate $9-16 million from the total $50 million appropriation as incentives to support non-digester practices on California dairy and livestock operations. The remainder of the funding appropriation will incentivize digester projects through the Dairy Digester Research and Development (DDRDP).
