State Water Efficiency & Enhancement Program

SWEEP Block Grant Pilot Program

CDFA accepted public comment on a draft Request for Grant Applications for the SWEEP Block Grant Pilot in November 2022. Through the block grant pilot program, qualified organizations across the state will be eligible to apply for state funding and then disburse funds to eligible farmers/ranchers or agricultural operations for on-farm irrigation projects. Additionally, awarded organizations would provide technical assistance to implement on-farm projects or will partner with technical assistance providers to provide this support. The draft Request for Grant Applications is linked below.

CDFA held a public workshop on November 29, 2022, at 2:30 pm Pacific Time to answer questions on the draft Request for Grant Applications.
