Applications are due by May 31, 2024.
Massachusetts’ Climate Smart Agriculture Program links applications for the Agricultural Climate Resiliency & Efficiencies (ACRE) Program, the Agricultural Environmental Enhancement Program (AEEP), and the Agricultural Energy Grant Program (ENER). This program continues the goals of the three individual grants by implementing projects that help the agricultural sector adapt to climate change or mitigate climate change, supporting projects that reduce or prevent impacts to natural resources that may result from agricultural practices, and helping to improve energy efficiency and facilitate adoption of alternative clean energy technologies. The applicant must be an agricultural operation with property in active agricultural use for the past three years.
