California Urban Agriculture Grant Program

Applications are due by October 23, 2023.
California Department of Food and Agriculture’s (CDFA) Office of Farm to Fork is accepting applications for $12 million in Urban Agriculture Grants. Funding is available in two tracks. The Systems Builder Community-Based Block Grant is intended to increase capacity for community-based organizations with involvement in urban and regional food systems to provide pass-through funding that supports urban agriculture activities. The Urban Agriculture Practitioner Grant directly funds urban agriculture projects by supporting costs associated with items like infrastructure, equipment, operations, workforce development, community engagement, and technical assistance. CDFA is setting aside up to 10% of awards for tribal governments and tribal-based non-profit organizations.
