CDFA Announces $10 Million State Water Efficiency and Enhancement Program Grant

The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) recently announced an estimated $10 million in competitive grant funding to provide financial assistance to agricultural operations for implementation of water conservation measures that result in increased water efficiency and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.

The CDFA is now accepting applications for the State Water Efficiency and Enhancement Program (SWEEP) until Tuesday, July 15, 2014. All applicants must access the Application Guidelines for information and program requirements. The CDFA has also hosted an online application using the Financial Assistance Application Submittal Tool (FAAST) and all applications must be submitted electronically using a FAAST account.

The CDFA is willing to assist with the application process and they will be holding five workshops at different statewide locations and one webinar. All workshops are free. If you are interested in attending any of these workshops, email with your contact information, the number of seats needed, and the workshop location.
