Pennsylvania Climate-Smart Grants

Applications opened September 15, 2023.
The Pennsylvania State University and partners are accepting pre-qualification applications from dairy producers in Pennsylvania for Climate-Smart Grants through the CARAT Project (Climate-smart agriculture that is profitable, regenerative, actionable, and trustworthy). Approximately 150 dairy farms will be approved through the pre-qualification process to work with a technical service provider to develop climate-smart plans for their operations. From there, 69 dairy farms across three cohorts — each representative of the various scales and types of dairies in Pennsylvania – will be selected for implementation of their plan.
