SACRAMENTO, December 20, 2019 - Two public stakeholder workshops are scheduled in January 2020 to assist applicants interested in the Dairy Digester Research and Development Program (DDRDP).

揑t is important that we ensure dairy digester program applicants get the feedback they need to be competitive in the grant application process,?said CDFA Secretary Karen Ross. 揥e hope potential applicants take advantage of these timely workshops, whether in person or via webinar.

CDFA was appropriated $34 million dollars from the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reduction Fund, authorized by the Budget Act of 2019, to provide financial assistance for dairy and livestock operations that install dairy digesters to capture methane.

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.
