Climate Smart Agriculture
What is Climate Smart Agriculture?
Hello! My name is Valerie Perez and I was hired by the Santa Cruz UC Cooperative Extension office as a Community Education Specialist (CES). My job as a CES is to provide technical assistance to farmers and growers who are interested in the California Department of Food and Agriculture’s (CDFA) Climate Smart Agriculture grants.
Currently, there are three grant funding opportunities available for Climate Smart Agriculture practices, including:
- Healthy Soils Program (HSP)
- State Water Efficiency and Enhancement Program (SWEEP)
- Alternative Manure Management Program (AMMP)
If you would like more information about these grants or need assistance with the application please contact me at (831) 763-8028 or firstname.lastname@example.org
