CDQAP-CDRF is offering this workshop to discuss the new program that will be offered by CDFA starting this spring. The first solicitation is expected in June of this year.
CDRF has received a large $85M grant from USDA on behalf of the California dairy industry. CDRF, CDFA, the University of California, Dairy Cares, and numerous others all worked collaboratively to pursue these grant dollars to support our industry in furthering our sustainability efforts.
The USDA Partnerships for Climate Smart Commodities Grant will provide cost-share incentive dollars to dairy producers for the implementation of advanced manure management practices. Dollars will be offered through CDFA, similar to their AMMP and DDRDP programs.
The workshop will provide information about the grant scope of work plus key details about the Dairy PLUS+ Program opportunities.
Please share with others in your organization that might be interested. All are invited to attend. Our goal is to ensure assistance is available to support interested producers in applying for funds.
Dairy consultants and key allied industry members are invited to attend the workshop to better understand the program and potential benefits to their clientele. Presentations will be provided by CDRF and CDFA staff; a Q & A session will follow.
Dairy Consultant and Allied Industry workshop held via Zoom on Monday, May 22, 10 a.m.- 12 p.m.
Registration will be required. Registration information will be provided shortly.
