SACRAMENTO, December 10, 2019 - CDFA is accepting public comments on its draft Request for Grant Applications (RGAs) for the next round of methane reduction funding to be awarded through its Climate Smart Agriculture Incentives Programs. These programs include the Dairy Digester Research and Development Program (DDRDP) and Alternative Manure Management Program (AMMP).

DDRDP and AMMP provide financial assistance for the installation of dairy digesters and non-digester manure management practices on dairy and livestock operations in California, which will result in reduced greenhouse gas emissions. These programs also incentivize demonstration of new technologies and practices that show promise in achieving methane reductions on California dairy and livestock operations.

The draft RGAs establish parameters by which competitive grants for the DDRDP and AMMP must be submitted and evaluated. The draft RGAs can be found on the following webpages under the CDFA抯 Office of Environmental Farming and Innovation:

?nbsp;Dairy Digester Research and Development Program (DDRDP):
?nbsp;Alternative Manure Management Program (AMMP):
?nbsp;AMMP Demonstration Projects:

Public comments on the draft guidelines will be accepted from December 10, 2019 through December 24, 2019, 5 p.m. PST (15-day comment period). Comments regarding the draft guidelines must be submitted to the specific email address noted on each draft document listed above.

AMMP and DDRDP are part of California Climate Investments, a statewide program that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing GHG emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment梡articularly in disadvantaged communities. The Cap-and-Trade program also creates a financial incentive for industries to invest in clean technologies and develop innovative ways to reduce pollution. California Climate Investments projects include affordable housing, renewable energy, public transportation, zero-emission vehicles, environmental restoration, more sustainable agriculture, recycling, and much more. At least 35 percent of these investments are located within and benefiting residents of disadvantaged communities, low-income communities and low-income households across California.
