Healthy Soils Program update on grant application deadlines

As you know, CDFA’s Healthy Soils Program (HSP) has two components – Demonstration Projects and Incentives Program – and each has its own grant application deadline:

  • HSP Demonstration Projects: The application deadline is Thursday, April 23 by 5 p.m. PT. We have received a significant number of applications, and you are encouraged to apply by the deadline to compete for these grant awards. Visit the HSP Demonstration Project webpage for criteria.
  • HSP Incentives Program: Applications are currently being accepted on a rolling, first-come basis until June 26, 2020 or until funds are expended, whichever is earlier. Please visit our HSP Incentives Program website for information on awards selected to-date, as well as assistance on completing the application.

Despite the challenges associated with the pandemic, our Technical Assistance Providers (TAPs) are available to assist with applications. They are using a number of techniques to connect with applicants, including phone, teleconference, electronic document sharing and more. Click here for a  list of TAPs by region.

While this is a trying time for everyone, we continue to see growing awareness of and interest in building soil health across many types of agricultural operations to address climate change. We thank you for your continued support of our Healthy Soils Program and other CDFA Climate Smart Agriculture efforts.
