California Announces Changes to Healthy Soils Program Grants

The California Department of Food and Agriculture is preparing to release grant solicitations for the next round of Healthy Soils Program projects. Approximately $25.2 million is available in this round. Several programmatic changes aim to make the application process easier, provide enhanced tools to assist with information required in the application, and achieve better alignment with USDA programs. For example, the 2020 USDA Conservation Practice Standard Payment rates will be adopted. Free technical assistance will also be offered to applicants. (NCAT is one of those assistance providers.)
