Healthy Soils Program Incentives Program

The California Department of Agriculture (CDFA)’s Healthy Soils Program (HSP) provides financial assistance for incentivizing and demonstrating the implementation of conservation agricultural management practices that sequester carbon, reduce atmospheric GHGs and improve soil health. It is funded by the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF) and stems from the California Healthy Soils Initiative, which is a collaboration of state agencies and departments that promotes the development of healthy soils on California’s farmlands and ranchlands.

The 2017 HSP Incentives Program is part of the Healthy Soils Program. The HSP Incentives Program provides up to $3.75 million in financial incentives to California growers and ranchers for implementation of agricultural management practices that sequester carbon, reduce atmospheric GHGs, and improve soil health.
