Sweeping for insects.

California Proactive Integrated Pest Management Solutions Program

Applications are due by August 30, 2024.
The California Department of Food and Agriculture is accepting grant applications for $1.1 million in funding through its Proactive Integrated Pest Management Solutions Program. This program proactively addresses the threat of invasive pests in California by identifying and researching effective management strategies before the pests’ arrival. CDFA strives to use IPM methods in all pest management activities, and the Proactive IPM Solutions program prioritizes low impact solutions, such as biological control and lower-risk chemicals. Once developed and tested, these IPM solutions can be rapidly used by CDFA and others when the target pest arrives in California.
