$35.2Mn for Calif. Dairy Anaerobic Digester Projects (Funding)
California Department of Food and Agriculture
Date: 2017-11-13
In Sacramento, the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) reports it has awarded $35.2 million in grant funding to 18 dairy digester projects across the state. Dairy digester grant recipients will provide an estimated $71.2 million in matching funds for the development of their projects.. These projects, part of the Dairy Digester Research and Development Program, will reduce methane greenhouse gas emissions from manure on California dairy farms.

CDFA, which also administers the Alternative Manure Management Program promoting non-digester manure management practices to reduce methane emissions, received 53 applications requesting a total of $29.5 million in grants.

Financial assistance for the installation of dairy digesters comes from California Climate Investments, a statewide initiative that uses Cap-and-Trade program funds to support the state's climate goals. CDFA and other state agencies are investing these proceeds in projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and provide additional benefits to California communities.

The Dairy Digester Research and Development Program (DDRDP) and Alternative Manure Management Program (AMMP) are part of California Climate Investments, a statewide program that puts billions of Cap and Trade dollars to work reducing GHG emissions.
