CDFA announces Application Workshops for the 2018 Dairy Digester Research and Development Program

CDFA’s Dairy Digester Research and Development Program (DDRDP) provides financial assistance for the installation of dairy digesters in California, which will result in reduced greenhouse gas emissions. CDFA received $99 million from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund in 2017 (AB 109 - Budget Act of 2017) for methane emissions reductions from dairy and livestock operations. CDFA plans to allocate between 65-80% of the funds as incentives to support digester projects on California dairy operations. Remainder of the funding appropriation will incentivize development of non-digester practices to reduce methane emissions through the Alternative Manure Management Program (AMMP). DDRDP is guided by the Statement of Principles (PDF) of the California-Federal Dairy Digester Working Group. The Working Group is a partnership of state, federal and local agencies with the common goal of identifying and removing barriers to the wide adoption of dairy digester systems in California.
