2018 Healthy Soils Program Incentives Program Technical Assistance Grant

The HSP Incentives Program provides financial incentives to California growers and ranchers to implement conservation management practices that sequester carbon, reduce atmospheric greenhouse gases (GHGs), and improve soil health. GHGs benefits are estimated using quantification methodology and tools developed by California Air Resources Board (CARB), USDA-NRCS and CDFA and soil health improvement will be assessed by measuring soil organic matter content.

Technical assistance workshops that provide hands-on on-demand application assistance to farmers and ranchers are critical to the success of HSP and the implementation of conservation management practices that reduce greenhouse gases and increase soil health. The provision of technical assistance can improve HSP accessibility to agricultural operations that otherwise may not have the resources or technical expertise to complete required  calculations and submit an application to CDFA Office of Environmental Farmin and Innovation.
