Technical Assistance

Technical assistance in the form of hands-on application assistance to farmers and ranchers is critical to the success of CDFA’s Climate Smart Agriculture programs including the Healthy Soils Program (HSP), the State Water Efficiency and Enhancement Program (SWEEP) and the Alternative Manure Management Program (AMMP). One-on-one technical assistance improves accessibility of incentive funding to agricultural operations that otherwise may not have the resources or technical expertise to complete the required calculations and submit applications. For this reason, the California Department of Food and Agriculture’s Office of Environmental Farming and Innovation has contracted with the following technical assistance providers throughout California to provide application assistance during the ongoing application periods for HSP, SWEEP, and AMMP.
